New Pattern: Fionnuala Cowl

In case you didn’t hear already, I have a new design out in the Fibers By Tracie line. The Fionnaula Cowl is a mobius cowl/wrap made of natural fibers. I made the sample in Classic Elite Soft Linen which is a fabulous blend of alpaca, wool and linen. It only takes four skeins, so it’s possible to get a great accessory without a lot of yarn. Soft Linen is a DK weight yarn if you want to substitute, but I would recommend using a natural blend to the great drape.

Here’s a pic and all the pertinent links and such.

Fionnuala means Fair Shoulders in Gaelic. I love the name (pronounced fin-OO-lah, by the way) and thought it fit the item perfectly. The yarn has a lot of drape. When I was outside photographing it, it rippled in the breeze. Too bad it was also 85 degrees outside (this was before 11am). Ah, pre-summer in Florida. Which means I won’t be wearing mine for a while, but hopefully if you live somewhere with real seasons, it may still be cool enough to wear one!

I have a few more designs in the works to come out in the Fibers By Tracie line, so keep an eye out! 🙂 Have a fabulous week everyone!
