Embleton by Tracey Todhunter
Sometimes it’s nice to let the yarn do the talking in a project, and in Embleton the simple design really lends itself to doing just that. This cosy cowl is brilliantly quick, easy and addictive. It is perfect for cooler autumn days and the cold of winter, sitting nicely around the collar and warding off the chilly wind. The design is also easy to play with and modify, with stripes, different sizing, or a ruffled edging.
Although this pattern was written for Whitfell DK, it would be just as good in Milburn DK and many other of our DK yarns.
