I am really excited to introduce you to Athena;
I have been very privileged to work with Artesano and their gorgeous brand new yarn Artesano Nebula.
The new yarn, made from Alpaca blends with Merino Wool is a double-knit roving yarn with flecks of Donegal adding texture
to create a sophisticated tweed finish.
It is amazing to work with and so soft and snuggly I was reluctant to send the cowl back to Artesano!
Athena comes in two sizes, a short cowl for yanking over your head as you head out the door (60cms / 23.5 inches in length) and the long one pictured for a more luxurious feel (120cms / 47.25 inches in length).
It is beginner friendly with options for knitting flat or in the round.
The pattern is a mix of moss stitch and dropped stitches, with a moss stitched ribbing on either end.
Needles: 4mm needles (US size 6)
Yarn: Artesano Nebula, DK, 270 – 450 yards (247 – 411 m)
Gauge: 20 stitches and 28 rows = 4 inches in st st before blocking
I can’t show the design process of this one since I didn’t have to do a sketch or submission. I have nothing to show you other than the finished cowl but I have to say I love the styling and the finished result in general.
I hope you like it!
