LMKG #16: Silk spiral cowl.

Can you guys stand one more cowl? This Last Minute Knitted Gift idea is a sure winner because a) it's silk; b) it's a cowl and c) it's all spiral-y, and done in the lustrous scrumptiousness of Alchemy Synchronicity.

The pattern, by Keri McKiernan, is a free ravelry download here and these photos are by knittingadrienne on ravelry. She used two skeins of Synchronicity. Alternatively, try Louisa Harding Grace (slightly smaller gauge so you might want to go down to #6-7 needles and cast on more stitches).


You can see knittingadrienne's notes on her project page, here. Don't you love that pretty shawl pin? And her cute photos?

P.S. Just realized that, in the Loops Scoop e-newsletter I sent out yesterday, I forgot to credit Zoe Gladstone for the photo of the "14" neckwarmer in Malabrigo Aquarella. She was kind enough to give me permission, then I spaced it! So sorry, Zoe - and I love your work!
