Inspired by Danielle's whirlwind trip to China with the family a couple years ago, the Chengdu Cowl was born. This cowl features a simple mesh pattern that shows off a thick thin yarn like Malabrigo yarn Caracol beautifully, while keeping the cowl lightweight enough for our warm Spring weather. Super bulky yarn and size 15 needles mean this is a perfect instant gratification project.
Malabrigo Caracol is a super bulky yarn that has been carefully kettle dyed in amazing colors that are remind us of the stained glass windows at Notre Dame. There is a thread around the yarn, that I refer to as fishnets. This allows all the bright colors to peek out behind the threads. This is a perfect yarn for quick knitting projects as well as a gorgeous blanket, or even a sweater for yourself or ones you love.
Caracol is currently dyed in lots of 5. If you are ordering more than 5 skeins you will be receiving different dye lots. Colors can vary greatly from skein to skein.As with any hand-dyed yarns Caracol has subtle variations in colors that are naturally occurring due to the nature of being hand-dyed.
