FO Friday: 3 Color Cashmere Cowl

Didn’t finish a project in more than a year, and now I am already back with a second FO in the span of a few weeks!  It’s a bloody miracle.  While I knew going back for a graduate degree would be time consuming,  I honestly didn’t think it would be this time consuming.   It will be over soon, though, so I just need to keep moving forward and being patient with the lack of creative time.

I started this project all the way back in 2016 during the Olympics.  It was my Ravellenics project that year and I clearly didn’t medal.   I did enjoy the project, despite the lack of medals, so I was determined to finish it.

The pattern is the 3 Color Cashmere Cowl by Joji Locatelli.  I had purchased the yarn as a kit during the LA Yarn Crawl that year, so while the colors of the Lux Adorna Knits 100% Cashmere Sport Weight is beautiful, I get zero credit for matching the colors.  The colors included were Jackolope, Bikini and Spring.

I used a US 5 size needle, and if I were to make another one I would go down a needle size for the ribbing.  Here is what it looks like when flat.  You can see how loose the ribbing is in the picture.

Joji’s patterns are a lot of fun to knit, so I highly recommend you attempt one yourself.
