I haven’t knit something for myself in ages, and as I was putting off weaving in the ends of another project, I wanted something quick and simple.

I had picked up a ball of Rowan Summerspun (50% cotton and 50% merino wool) and had thought to make a very loosely knit late summer/early fall scarf, but then I came across the Shapely Cowl by Amy Swenson. Short and sweet – perfect!

The variegated summerspun yarn worked wonderfully for this pattern. There was no pooling, and the blending colours enhance the stitch pattern. My ravelry notes are here.

As much as I am thoroughly enjoying summer, I look forward to wearing this cowl when the evenings get cooler again. It seems with knitting I must always be a season ahead!
