finished object: dark ice cowl

Pattern: Ice Queen, from the Winter 2007 issue of Knitty

Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Suri Laceweight, in the Gypsy Rose colourway. This was really nice yarn to work with, and is warm and soft to wear.

Needles: 3.75mm

Notes: I wanted more of a neckwarmer than a cowl, so I cast off after 9 inches. I also wanted the edgings to be simpler than specified in the pattern, so I begun and ended the cowl with 6 rows of garter stitch.
