PATTERN DETAILS

The Old Shell stitch pattern, worked in more than one color, highlights the undulating nature of the stitch pattern, reminiscent of waves upon the shore, or the lines on a scallop shell. This pattern gives several options - DK and Chunky weight neck and shoulder cowls. Knit in Kraemer Yarns lovely, new incarnation of their soft Alpaca Handknitting Yarn, which is now blended with 30% merino, so there's still plenty of alpaca drape and softness, but now has better body. Both the alpaca and merino fiber come from US sources and are spun in Pennsylvania, giving us a beautiful, natural fiber yarn, with a smaller carbon footprint than imported yarns, and at a reasonable price. These cowls will add soft, warm accessories to your wardrobe, as well as make ideal, last-minute gifts.
