I scoured Ravelry, my own library, and even my own past projects for just the right pattern. I just kept not having enough yarn to make anything. I was about to give up when I thought about what exactly I wanted to make with the buttery soft yarn. Soft yarn would be nice against my skin. My neck could use a barrier against the cold weather we have been experiencing lately. I could make a cowl in a fun stitch pattern. My friend, Lenora, had introduced me to a stitch pattern called the fluted banister. I love how this stitch looks and it gives a great texture to a knitted fabric. I have made one of these cowls before out of an alpaca blend yarn and loved the end product. I was hoping for a similar result with the Jade Sapphire cashmere blend.
