FREE Wood Smoke Cowl Pattern!

Snow Tree  & Northwoods Solstice
Over the last couple of years, we have worked with our friends at Mountain Colors Yarn to create some fantastic exclusive yarn colors available only at FiberWild!  It's hard for me to pick a favorite, but apparently you have - two of the most popular colors have been Northwoods Solstice and Snow Tree.  Both are available in Mountain Color Yarn's Winter Lace Jr., a soft, lace weight yarn in a silk and wool blend.  This yummy yarn demanded a great design to compliment the subtle color changes in both Northwoods Solstice and Snow Tree . . . introducing my Wood Smoke Cowl!

This traditional smoke ring cowl, also known as a “wimple,” provides the knitter with the perfect canvas to work delicate lace using the Winter Lace Jr. yarn. The soft blend of silk and wool, paired with a feminine lace pattern, creates a feather light fabric that folds and drapes beautifully. You can wear this light and airy versatile cowl over the shoulder, as a fancy scarf, or over your head to keep you out of the cold without giving you "hat-hair".

The cowl is knit in the round, and measures approximately 36” in circumference at the bottom, 24” circumference at the top, and about 18” long. You will need just one skein of Winter Lace Jr. and two sets of 24” circulars, a US 5 (3.75 mm) and a US 6 (4.0 mm). We recommend the addi Lace or the addi Rockets. The pattern is for the intermediate knitter.

Bonus:  The Wood Smoke Cowl pattern is FREE with the purchase of any color of Winter Lace Jr. yarn!  So just how many colors is that?  In addition to the available-only-at-FiberWild! Northwoods Solstice, Snow Tree, Bozemill Spring and Sugared Violet, there are ten other in-stock colors.

Love the colors, but just not into lace weight?  Northwoods Solstice is also available in Mountain Colors Weavers Wool 1/4 and Alpaca Blend and Snow Tree is also available in Alpaca Blend and Bearfoot.  (But don't try the Wood Smoke Cowl in the other yarn weights - your gauge will be way off!)

Happy Knitting . . . Amy
