There’s nothing I adore more than getting to play with new yarn. So when the lovely folks at Anzula had a new base available, I just knew I wanted to be the one of the first folks to make something pretty with it!
The Dottie base is a blend of squishy superwash merino with some nylon and beautiful little dark speckled bits that give it character and depth. The generous 420 yard put up made for a cozy long line cowl that is lightweight and soft, but still plenty of coverage to keep you nice and warm.
The yarn is delicious, as all Anzula yarn is, but it’s sturdy too. The nylon content would be great for socks, and it stood up well to quite a few frogging sessions as I figured out exactly what the yarn wanted to be when it grew up! That’s a very important quality for a designer.
The resulting cowl is something I’m very proud of! It starts off with a flat triangle and incorporates garter stitch and a simple lace column that goes all the way down the front of the cowl and is used for sections of the cowl as well. I finished it off with a picot bind off to make for a pretty edging!
