This has been a long time coming, but the Fairy Mist pattern has now been revamped for a wide variety of yarn weights and gauges! Lace weight, fingering weight, DK, Worsted, and Bulky. I think the DK version might be my favourite, but I’m pretty smitten with this beautiful yarn for the Bulky weight version:
Yarn: Tanis Fiber Arts Grey Label Chunky in ‘Tartan’
Needles: 6 mm circulars (US 10)
Notes: The cowl is the same length/circumference in all sizes, but the different weights give the fabric different characteristics, which is so fun. The lace weight one is so light and airy, and as the yarn gets thicker, the cowl gets cozier.
And how awesome is it when you have a cowl pattern that can be worked in almost any yarn weight? I love it when a pattern has flexibility. But hey, I’m biased. you should totally buy it, if you haven’t already.
This bulky weight version is so soft and squishy and warm! I love wearing Tartan Mist (that’s what I’m calling this version, sounds all Scottish and Braveheart-esque), and a new cowl in the middle of winter helps make me a little more excited for the colder weather, you know what I mean?
I am not smiling in any of these photos and I’m not sure why- I was having a great day! We had a spontaneous ‘car date’- they happen when we are in the car with the kids, and both of them fall asleep. Then one of us pops into a cafe for specialty coffees and baked treats, and we eat them in the front seat and chat, while the kids sleep in the back. One this day, we also found this amazing wall with bright, citrusy colored street art, which made for a fun photo backdrop- it just felt like a lovely afternoon! And here I am, looking waaaay too serious about my cowl. I guess I’m just seriously in love with it!
