I’m thrilled to welcome Jessica Ays of Double the Stitches into our little Henlia Handmade family! She designed this stunner of a cowl for us with Have a Gray Speckly Day in mind. However, this pattern works well with any the new fall colorways. Just keep in mind that the pattern will stand out more when using a speckled colorway. If you’d prefer to use one of the Signature Collection colorways, please select any color from the drop-down menu and include your preferred colorway in the Order Notes on the checkout page.
Here’s what Jessica has to say about her brand new pattern:
“The blossoming floral motif that defines the Efflorescence Cowl is a nod to the friendship I have found with the wonderful Mindy of Henlia Handmade and is the result of the growth of both of our handmade dreams. This cowl was designed in celebration of her first year in business.
The Efflorescence Cowl is knit in the round, from the bottom up, beginning and ending with ribbing stitches that flow through the floral motif. It features eyelets that make an airy pattern and beautifully round bobbles, created with a crochet hook, to add extra interest and texture. The center of the blossoms is the result of an unusual 6 stitch cable. With a technique or two that may be new, the adventurous beginner will find a nice challenge while the experienced knitter will stay engaged throughout the project.
This intricate design is one you’ll be proud to wear as you impress everyone with your knitting and show off this stunning accessory.”

–> Each skein is 100 grams of rustic, yet soft, smooth and bouncy fingering (sock) weight wool yarn grown and milled in Wyoming. Yarn is lovingly dyed with natural materials ethically sourced and/or grown in my Central Oregon garden. The yarn wrap features plantable wildflower seed paper so that you can enjoy even more of nature’s beauty!
–> When you purchase one of our hanks of yarn, you’re supporting local ranchers and a woman-owned fiber mill to keep our small communities thriving. You’ll be creating on-trend projects while using dyes that are the gentlest on our environment by keeping our water sources clean. Knitting with this yarn will connect you so deeply to the sheep it will almost feel like you have one of your own!
–> This yarn is farm-fresh. It arrives full of vegetation leftover from the sheep’s shenanigans out in their field. I pick out as much as I can by hand, but there will likely be some leftover bits that I’ve missed. Just consider these extra love from the sheep! Baaaa…
–> Every effort will be made to package your order in an environmentally-friendly way using recycled and/or reused materials.
***Hand wash cool***
Great care was taken to ensure dye was set properly. However, it is normal for natural dye matter to continue to rinse for the first few washes.
