Purple Strangler

on Cherni Vrah :)

Today we went up to the summit of Vitosha - Cherni vruh, and I decided to use the extraordinary place to photo shoot my latest knit - a cowl, made from the same yarn as the hat and based on a part of the hat pattern. My model was pretty tired from all the speedy climbing and a bit reluctant to stay for long in a wooly hat and cowl, complaining of its strangling nature in the heat, hence the name of the project :)

Pattern: based on the widest part of the chart for Drops Basque Hat, 96 st., 4 leaf motifs
Needle: 4 mm Yarn: Alize Lanagold Solids, 70g
Time to knit: two days

Together with the hat and gloves (knitted a year and a half ago, just before I started blogging),
the cowl is a part of a set of three.


  1. Шикарный комплект получился!!!

  7. Oh it's beautiful and it makes a lovely set with the hat and gloves! Gorgeous scenery, but I can understand why your charming model didn't want all those warm things on for very long :)
