Mulberry & Merino, a 50/50 blend of silk and wool, knits up as a gently spun worsted weight on 4.50 mm needles.  This yarn slides across the needles with buttery smoothness,  light as air.  Colours range from bold hues of russet, pumpkin, teal, and apple green into smoky shades of purple, lilac, oyster, and palest pink.  With its incredible sheen and drape, knitters are happily knitting all sorts of projects including this Silky Cowl, a perfect accessory for the cool days of Autumn.

    There is a slight error in this pattern. There should be 2 more stitches cast on, and the pattern row should start with: sl1, k1, psso, K2 *yo to make it look the same as the rest of the pattern.
