I fell in love with some Berroco Boboli yarn at the Orchardside Yarn Shop in Virginia on vacation last summer. However, I was too cheap (and busy) to invest in the necessary 3 skeins for the short-sleeve T I was drooling over. So instead I experimented with a little one-skein improvised cowl pattern starting in rib and then finishing with a little ruffle.
It looks a little silly with no neck inside! More like a volcano or artistic vase. :-)
I made the Ruffle using THIS tutorial.
Wearing it turns out to be fun with options.
|Plain put it on and go look.|
|Folded down neck for added warmth on a windy day.|
|Folded look under a jacket in the cold.|
|The muffler; or is that a spy film I should be auditioning for?|
