The Milky Way Cowl by Bea Naretto is a deep cone-shaped cowl with I-cord trim and a gradient of rich, jewel tones behind the bright points of the light main colour, created with stranded colour work.
The sumptuous fibres in Road to China Light make this the softest yarn to wear against delicate neck skin, and the depth of the cowl allows you to really nestle into and feel surrounded by the luxurious softness.
The Milky Way Cowl is the second pattern from The Almanac Series II, a seasonal guide to knitting with The Fibre Co. yarns.
The last days of summer are celebrated in our Yarn of the Month for August, Road to China Light. This silky smooth sport-weight yarn has rich, jewel-bright tones perfectly evoking the last, and brightest of the summer floral bouquets.
