While I was in Seattle for the Madrona Winter Retreat, I visited the Skacel warehouse and was given the opportunity to experiment with one of their new yarns, CoBaSi DK.
Paired with another yarn they carry, Ambiente, I thought it'd make a really lovely linen stitch cowl... not just because of the color patterning in Ambiente being obscured by the solid main color yarn, but also because of the mixture of the two yarn materials.
Ambiente is merino superwash, while CoBaSi DK is cotton, bamboo, silk, and nylon. The two of them combined create a layer that's warm (but not too warm) for cooler temperatures.
It's a free pattern, available HERE. I hope you enjoy it.
