FO Friday: Inspira Libertia Woola

Here’s a bandwagon I’m glad I hopped on:

Project: Inspira Libertia Woola

Pattern: Inspira Cowl (“steampunk” variant)

Designer: celerstalk

Available: FREE! on Ravelry

Yarn: CEY Liberty Wool Print in Rainforest (MC) and Berry Brambles (CC)

It seems like everyone is making one of these, these days — and Liberty Wool is just such a perfect yarn for this simple-yet-colorful project! I’m a loose knitter, so I went down a needle size … I think I could have gone down one more, and still come out great.  The finished fabric on my cowl is soft and drapey — I’ve seen others that were much more corrugated and stand-up-on-there-own-ish.

Each time the ribs swapped places, I knit the whole round — to avoid funny purl-bump color changes.  I also stopped 12 rows early, most because I was running out of yarn … but it was also quite big enough.  This project was a joy to knit.
