3 Color Folio Luxe Cowl

Posted on

     Okay, first to clarify: this pattern is named the 3 Color Cashmere Cowl, however we have it knit up with 3 skeins of Folio Luxe- which is an incredibly soft and drapey alpaca blend with a touch of sparkle. You know we do love our cashmere, but this is a lovely (and a much more affordable) alternative.

The 3 Color Cashmere Cowl by Joji is available to download for $4.

Our sample used 3 skeins (1 in each color) of Folio Luxe, which are only $8.50 each....

That means this project, even with the pattern purchase, is just under $30.

I love that this cowl is like a sampler of stitches. With a new texture or pattern every few inches, you definitely won't get bored knitting this one!

     The size and variety of patterns within the cowl also makes it fun to wear. It seems like every time you toss it on, it's a totally new piece! The drapey folds hide and expose different elements of the design as you move around, and the subtle touch of sparkle in the Folio Luxe adds a whole other level of depth and interest.

     The 3 Color Cashmere Cowl is knit in the round, with no stitches more complex than S2kp (slip 2 as if to k2tog, k1, pass slipped sts over). Since the instructions are written out, and the patterns are both simple(ish) and short, this would be an excellent project for an intermediate-beginner who wants to try out new techniques. Give it a go!

The Folio Luxe colors in our sample were Hydra, Aries, and Pisces
I also thought that Orion, Cassiopeia, and Pisces (shown on the left) was a great combo;
and Orion, Gemini, and Cassiopeia (shown on the right) is a lovely choice for a more subtle blend of colors.

    Bette, as of right now (2/15/17) most of the Folio Luxe has sold out, however we will be getting more in shortly (even some in colors other than grey & brown!). If you scroll up and read the blog post, you’ll find many links throughout that’ll direct you to where you can purchase both the pattern and the yarn. As for the sweater- the pattern is called Rozmin and you can purchase the yarn Hanako here: https://northcoastknittery.com/products/hanako

    Wow! What a perfect cowl! Easy enough to knit while travelling, light enough to wear all year long (here), and beautiful enough to wear as often as possible! Good work!
