Summertime Drop Stitch Cowl

The staff at Yarns By Design enjoys making fun cowl projects, no matter what season it is. We wanted to try something new with one of our more favorite fibers, Habu Textiles Cotton Gima. The finished project looks great and will accessorize any outfit this summer.

From Habu Textiles:
”This is a cotton, which feels like paper. “Gima” literally means “fake linen” in Japanese. It feels like linen paper if you do not know it! Great to knit in single. Beautiful warp & weft yarn for weavers also. Looks beautiful in simple stockinette, but also great in seed stitch or just garter (very three dimensional) It may feel stiff in the beginning, but will soften greatly.”

Papery but very soft. Could be used with a wide range of needle sizes. Hand wash or dry clean only.

The Summertime Drop Stitch Cowl is a FREE pattern when you purchase Cotton Gima. We have a nice selection of colors to choose from.
