yarn_silkmistIn honour of the recent arrival of Silk Mist from SweetGeorgia Yarns in store, our free pattern of the week is Jane Richmond’s simple and modern Welted Cowl which uses just one skein of this hand-dyed silk and mohair blend.

Here is Jane’s description of the design: “This very simple cowl features horizontal welts by alternating Stockinette and reverse Stockinette stitch. The laceweight Silk Mist yarn creates a weightless accessory with the appearance of great volume. A piece like this is perfect for the transitional seasons of spring and fall, and would be equally useful on cool summer nights. I love how such a whisper thin fabric can be so effectively warm and cozy. But what I like most of all is the ability to scrunch up a scarf like this and stuff it into a coat pocket to make it disappear when I?m not wearing it. My intention was a modern use for this lace weight silk/mohair blend.” ? Jane Richmond
