The wonderful folks over at Craftsy and working with Cloudborn Fibers, a new yarn company. Their yarn is exclusive to Craftsy and can't be found anywhere else.
A few months ago, Cloudborn asked me to design something using their yummy yarn! A privilege indeed. They sent some super soft Baby Alpaca Bulky fiber in light blue and cream. I immediately saw Tiffany's signature blue!
Cloudborn has made this yarn in a perfect blend of baby softness and a lovely halo for the most luxurious feel around your neck. It has great stitch definition and no splitting as you work.
The cowl is knit in the round, no purls, except for the rib sections. Wear it down or wrapped around your neck....
(if you look closely you can see me in my daughters sunglasses)! I always think this is funny for some reason. Anyhoos....
The seed stitch headband coordinates beautifully without being too matchy, matchy.
I wish you could feel the softness of this squishy goodness!
This is a beginner pattern, however, still satisfying for all levels of skill.

As gift giving time approaches, think about adding some tags to the gift bag! I found these by searching on Pinterest. I'm sorry I don't have the links for you. While you're over at Craftsy getting your free pattern, type "free tags" in the search box and a bunch will pop up for you!
Print them off, cut them out and you're done!
