The French Press Cowl is part of Larissa Brown's KAL Line. The KAL Line is a new line of knitalong-friendly projects that invite knitters to invent and play with embellishments and yarn choices. The idea here is to knit the cowl in a beautiful yarn and then thread anything (cord, ribbon, yarn, or whatever you can think of) through the column of eyelets to scrunch or distort the cowl.
Although the pattern calls for 400 yards of yarn, I found that 1 skein of Malabrigo Yarn Merino Worsted (210 yards) made a substantial cowl. I haven't come up with anything creative to thread the cowl with yet. But Melody was partial to this purple satin ribbon she found in my closet.
I was surprised to see that this cowl can also be used as a capelet for Melody. This is going to be an adorable and practical Winter accessory for her.
