The Fibre Co. Acadia
Acadia is a versatile, rustic blend of merino, alpaca and silk that has a heathered appearance from the layers of fiber that are kettle dyed to create the subtle duotones that are the hallmark of yarns from The Fibre Co. The Ritalin Cowl by Shelley Brander creatively mixes 4 shades of Acadia, but with this easy pattern you can mix-and-match your own color scheme using 1, 2, 3 or 4 colors. You'll need a total of 4 skeins to knit the pattern which is free and located here. We used a size US8 (5mm) 32 inch circular needle.
