ebating keeping the brown in my palette? Well, it turns out that each "tea cake" didn't stretch as far as I thought it would. I had estimated I could get three contrast stripes from each tea cake--wrong! Only two, it turns out. So that pretty much forced my hand and pushed me to add more browns to the mix than I initially anticipated. I'm not regretting it one bit, though. Adding the browns pushed me a little colorwise, but ended up adding so much more depth and contrast to the cowl. I am so in love with how this project turned out! You can find a sequential list of the colorways I used in the order they appear on my Ravelry project page.
Pattern: fine tune cowl
Yarn: Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in Astrid Grey (1.33 skeins! One skein got me through 3/4 pattern repeats, or 12 wedges) and approximately half of a Jimmy Bean's Wool tosh tea cake sampler set (colorway: Lemon Ginger)
Needles: Size 4 Addi Turbo's
(sorry, a bit blurry, but I wanted to show more of the color pairings)
