On the Hudson by Sandra Singh

Stark granite bluffs, fiery foliage, the sound of swiftly rushing, alternating currents, all under a crystal blue sky; this is my view and my inspiration for the On the Hudson cowl, my very first knitting pattern!

This cacophony of colors and textures spoke to me when I picked up my needles to begin this design.  I selected a beautiful mix of yarns, my 1 Ply Merino Worsted, Malabrigo Merino Worsted and Cascade 220 Superwash and 220 Wool and stitch patterns that are reversible, so you can relax and enjoy wearing this cowl however you please.

All the patterns are beautiful. But I like vests and Aileen is my favorite.
