Here's a lovely finished photo of the Chic Cowl-Neck Sweater pattern, but this one is the short-sleeved version (included in the pattern) AND it's in a lush mohair blend that gives it such a different look. Stunning!
Mary R. of Atlanta, Georgia used Rowan Cocoon in colorway 812 (a dusty purple) for her #90 Chic Cowl-Neck Sweater.
It's such a different look in a mohair blend vs. the merino wool used in the original sample. And such a sophisticated color!
Here is what she has to say about the project: "It was my first top-down sweater and I was a bit worried about how it would come together - but the pattern was detailed and easy to follow and I didn't have any problems at all.
The cables on the cowl were fun to knit, but my favorite part was the lacy cable down the front. (oh and also not having ANYthing to seam at the end - I've made three more top-down sweaters since then and I am sold on the technique!)" -- Mary R.
Thanks, Mary! It fits you nicely too ;-)
