Project Inspiration – Ghazal Cowl in Malabrigo

A whole slew of the Twistedistas have been casting on new projects this week, and they just happen to all be the same pattern, Ghazal Cowl by Katherine Leek. (Since we get the question a lot, the word ghazal is pronounced huzzle, and it’s a type of poem.)

This simple cowl pattern is perfect for showing off variegated yarn, is written for three different yarn weights (lace, DK and worsted) and for three different cowl lengths.

So what yarns are the Twistedistas using for their new projects? They’ve all chosen different Malabrigo yarns such as Rios, Worsted, Rastita and Lace. Really, the hardest part is deciding what color…
