Alpaca and Noro Aya Shoulder Cozy
Pattern: Shoulder Cozy by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas
Yarn: 2 skeins Noro Aya, colorway 12, Cascade Alpaca Lace, pink.
Needles: Size 3
Mods: I fear mohair for a couple of reasons...I find it itchy and knitting it can drive me nuts, or I should say frogging it. I really do like how mohair looks and remember being very jealous of a girl's sweater in HS, as it was all fluffy and wonderful in it's over sized splendor...but then I digress. I still had 5 skeins of the Noro Aya left in this pink colorway. I don't know what I was I thinking when I bought that bag. Mixed with the more saturated pink I really ended up loving the colors so I made another one for my sister who is modeling hers. I C0 120 stitches for mine and 100 stitches for hers and followed the instructions for the smaller size as we are not tall. The yarn combo is very soft and snuggly.
This is a very fast and easy knit! I love the results. The pattern has really caught on at Aloha Yarns, and I love the different combinations of yarns and colors people come up with for this practical pattern. It is perfect for those chilly mornings.
