|cheesy with a z picture of me in the cowl. It's tough photographing yourself!|
I snagged a skein for myself directly from the dye pots b/c MINE. MINE. ALL MINE.
Chasing Rainbows shawls in a row I'm OVER stripes. However I'm lazy and didn't want to do any intense colorwork or follow any charts or any of that. So I wanted to only knit with one color at a time... but NOT have the result be stripes.
I wanted it to be big enough to wrap around my neck twice. But not so crazy big that I couldn't wear it only looped once:
In the end I came up with my own design. Because nothing was exactly what I wanted. I'm so, so, SO happy with the result:
Anyways I just put the pattern up on Ravelry and I"m offering it free through this Friday.
FALL RUN COWL
(edited to add - to get the pattern for free just click that link and add it to your Ravelry store - when you check out it will ring up as free!)
The yarn to knit this is also available in the Destination Yarn Shop. My cowl is knit out of the Fall Run and Pine Forest colorways although I think just about any combination would look great. The texture and the not-stripes really works well with variegated yarns:
PS - if any of your are in the Pittsburgh area I will be at the Indie Knit and Spin there this weekend. Come and say hi!
