A very easy, very quick to knit cowl, A Wee Kilt.
I think the yarn's Manos Silk Blend. As usual, the label's long gone! I forgot to weigh the yarn but it looks like I've used about 60g.
This is that purple which looks completely different under different lights. At home it's a red purple and here at work it's a blue purple (which I prefer!).
The stitch texture is purely knit and purl, very easy to memorise. It would look great on a slightly thicker, plumper yarn too. A great last minute gift!
