New design: Grandes études {Part I}

Today I would like to show you third design from my planned e-book “Variations on a Theme”.
Caprice No. 24 in A minor is the final caprice of Niccolò Paganini’s 24 Caprices, and a famous work for solo violin.
The caprice has provided a rich seam of material for works by many composers. One of them is Franz Liszt.
The Grandes études de Paganini are a series of six etudes for the piano by Franz Liszt. The pieces are all based on the compositions of Niccolò Paganini for violin.

 For this cowl I have used 3 skeins of Classic Elite Yarns Frescо (60% Wool, 30% Alpaca, 10% Angora, sport weight 5 ply) yarn. The yarn is so soft and pleasant to knit with. It is bouncy and shows stitches very well. The alpaca fuzz did not bother me at all. It is very slight and only visible on black.
Love how this cowl turned out :-) It folds so nicely around the neck and I love how the stitch pattern looks in a cowl. Some of you might recognize this stitch pattern from one of my previous designs "Iva". This stitch might look different from the rest of designs in “Variations on a Theme” collection, but it is not that different ;-) It is the same slipped stitich as in "Caprice No. 24" and "Rapsodiya" changed just a tiny bit. However, the resulting pattern looks dramatically different from the one used in the shawls.

My project called  Grandes études {Part I} and can be found on Ravelry here.
I am currently working on Grandes études {Part II}.
This pattern is going to be available with the rest of “Variations on a Theme” collection by mid March ;-)

Happy knitting,

Девочки спасибо большое всем за добрые слова и за то что нашли время заглянуть :-) тысячи извинений что я мало захожу в гости ко всем и по русски посты почти не пишу, но такое сейчас у меня время занятое очень и тяжело всё успеть :-)

UmmRania, thank you so much for your kind words ;-) I am very exited about this collection and it is very satisfying that others like it too :-)
