It's still chilly outside and what better way to keep warm than with a super soft baby alpaca cowl? This cowl was knit using one skein of Cascade Yarns Baby Alpaca Chunky in color 562 Monterey Bay. The pattern knits up quick on a US 11 in the round with a fun 5 row pattern repeat. It's available free from Cascade Yarns here.
Baby Alpaca Chunky is 100% baby alpaca with a gauge of 3.5 sts/ inch on a US 10 and 108 yards per 100 gram skein. This yarn is so soft and squishy. The colors are beautiful, from hand painted to heathered solids.
I think everyone needs one of these cowls.
