Project Name: Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix

I like this one better than Deep Purple Cowl because the stripes are better defined and closer to the design in my mind. This will be the birthday gift for my friend from first grade instead of the Deep Purple Cowl. I am thinking the person for whom I am knitting this cowl, will not even notice the difference, but out of honesty I will give full disclosure, reducing the price if necessary. I don’t think it will be a problem, as the customer saw the first one and loved that one also.

Yarn A: Lion Brand Color Waves (Fiber Content: 83% Acrylic, 17% Polyester; Yarn Color: 347 Purple Vista; Yarn Weight: 5, Bulky)
Yarn B: Thread (Fiber Content: Unknown; Yarn Color: Unknown [Purple]; Yarn Weight: n/a)
Needle Size: US 10

I really liked the Lion Brand Color Waves for it’s softness, cushiness and color runs. Too bad it has been discontinued.

    1. I am honored to receive a reply from Lion Brand…blushing

      Ben, I appreciate your point of view Ben; my position was that the yarn texture is not the same – boucle versus bulky(?) – so it is not the same yarn. Again, your comment will clarify to future readers of this post 🙂 . Thanks for the compliment; I was actually surprised to be creating a texture I had been wanting to try for a while. I love to mix textures when creating non-fit accessories.

      Thanks for the visit.
