Sometimes when we’re contemplating a gift, we jump to the conclusion that a quick knit can only be achieved with worsted weight or above. However, this week we’re featuring a lovely cowl in lace weight yarn that proves this stereotype wrong. Knit on US 7s, often with two strands held together, the Iodine Cowl is a quick, fun knit that lets you play with both color and structure while stitching a delicate and lovely gift than anyone would be happy to receive. The combination of silk and mohair creates an accessory that is light, lusciously soft, and can easily transition from winter into spring. You might be surprised at how fast this cowl knits up, so make sure you pick up a set of colors for yourself!
