Our new Twist Cowl uses just 1 skein of gorgeous Emma's Suri Silk. It knits up with minimal effort and maximum payoff!
Few knitterly things are as satisfying as a soothing, uncomplicated knitting project that can be put down and picked up without worrying about where you left off in the pattern. The Twist Cowl is the carefree kind of knit you can unwind with after a long day and is perfectly packable for road trips and long weekends.
Suri Silk is a light-as-a-feather laceweight blend of baby-soft Suri alpaca and silk hand-dyed in Emma's signature range of fun, candy-colored shades. Its cloudlike texture knits into gossamer light fabrics with a subtle silky sheen and a downy softness that wears weightlessly against the skin.
Unlike classic mohair/silk yarns,Suri Silk's alpaca content gives it a fluffier halo and something a bit more substantial to hold and knit with. It's also a fantastic option if you've ever experienced a mohair sensitivity- it's just so soft!
The Twist Cowl begins as a knitted tube that's worked in the round. Then, just before seaming the ends together, you'll give the tube a half-turn to create its signature twist.
If you can cast on, cast off, and mattress stitch, you can make this cowl! The twist also helps the cowl lie beautifully against your neckline - just pop it on and go, no fuss, no muss!
