Lava Flow Cowl, take 3

Lava Flow Cowl, Alta Moda Cashmere

Lava Flow Cowl #1 is still in progress. I misread the instructions and cabled more frequently than the pattern called for - letting it marinate while I think about working that into the pattern or just starting over.

Lava Flow Cowl #2 - frogged, as posted earlier.

Lava Flow Cowl #3 has knit up quickly; what I need to do now is weave in the ends, wash it, block it, and see if it's the right length. This time I'm using Lana Grossa Alta Moda Cashmere on US #13 needles, and it is knitting up to be rather light and fluffy for something so bulky.

Lava Flow Cowl, free pattern from the DixieStix blog. I had two skeins of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky and a pair of US 10.5 knitting needles that I was okay with losing if airport security decided to confiscate them, so I took this on a very long airplane ride and it was great! Until I ran out of yarn.

Lava Flow Cowl in progress

It's not long enough to make a comfortable cowl, and this yarn has been discontinued, so I'm going to frog it and make something else. I'm okay with that; I cast on another one in a different yarn and this time I made sure I have enough!
