When Heather saw this particular skein of Madelinetosh Tosh Sport in Terrarium, she knew she had to knit something special with it. The Eleanor Cowl by Audrey Knight, a free pattern from Knitty
, was the perfect thing! It has a beautiful but fairly simple lace pattern that shows off the wonderful color variation in the hand-dyed yarn.
Because she didn't want the cowl to fit as closely around the face as the original pattern, Heather did not switch to a smaller needle for her last pattern repeat - she used the same size as for the body of the cowl. She worked the cowl in the round, but it can also be worked flat and seamed.
