Patternum Novum :: Aurelia Cowl

Have you heard?  Knitscene Spring 2015 is out and it's a beauty. Golden tones, cables, and a collection by the uber-talented Bristol's pretty amazing. And I swear I'm not just saying that because I have a design in it....

My Aurelia Cowl is yet another of my favorite shawl-cowl hybrid accessories. It starts as a semi-circular shawlette and is joined to work in the round to create a cowl. I took small portions of the Ostrich Plumes stitch pattern and put them in bands around the cowl, which creates cool wavy lines and a scalloped edge.

The cowl is knit up in TSC Artyarns Tranquility Glitter, a blend of DK, merino, cashmere, and silk...and sparkle. It's pretty luxurious, and I'm not gonna lie -- I love a little glitter in my knitting.

You can find out more about Aurelia on Ravelry and check out the whole issue of Knitscene on Ravelry, here. We may still be in chilly January, but it's not too early to be knitting up some pretty spring accessories! You want to be prepared, right? :)
