Another new pattern! Odile (pronounced Oh-Deel), is named after the main character of Joe Meno’s Office Girl, which I mentioned recently.

Odile

Pattern now available for purchase on ravelry

Yarn: Schulana Milford in #27

Odile is a long cowl or circle scarf that features rich textures created by horseshoe cables and mistake rib.  My original prototype was in Rowan Lima, and was really lovely.  But the Milford creates a strong relief, which emphasizes the texture.

I’ve been a little addicted to the Milford this Winter (you may remember my grint hat).  It’s soft, lofty, and oh so light.  It’s a blend of wool, alpaca, acrylic and silk, where the silk is plied with the other fibers, not blended it.  This adds to it’s beautiful tweediness, and picks up the light.

The finished cowl is 9” wide and 52” around.  It is lofty and warm, sitting just around the neck when doubled up.
