One of Izzy Knits’ featured designers, Suzanne Nielsen, created this beautiful Driving on Cloud 9 Mobius Cowl specifically for Jade Sapphire’s spectacularly soft 100% cashmere.
Knit with the 6 mini-skeins in Jade Sapphire’s Mini Ombre Collection (Zageo 6-ply), this kit comes in four (4) hand-dyed colors, ranging from subtle to saturated. Zageo 6-ply is 100% Mongolian cashmere, exquisitely soft, worsted-weight, and hand-dyed in the USA. The combined weight of the 6 mini skeins is 5.3 oz for a total of 325 yards (approximately 54 yards each).
For this kit, Suzanne has graciously given Izzy Knits her Driving on Cloud 9 pattern for free, so you pay only for the yarn. On Ravelry, this pattern sells for $5.00. Pattern provided as a downloadable PDF.
