Hello! I am so excited to be able to bring out not one but two new cowl designs. In case you hadn’t guessed, I love to knit and wear cowls. They are warm and cozy and often give you a chance to try a new technique. That is certainly the case with these two.
First, the Paint Box Cowl. This is the direct result of all that playing around with mitered squares that I did in the fall. Remember? Then I noodled around with it at Rhinebeck—
And here it is:
Paint Box is a fun mitered squares project–a great introduction if you have never done them before. It is also a good project to use to play with color–this version uses a main color which is multi-hued and three coordinating solids. Other versions could use one main color and one solid or you could go nuts and use a different pair of colors for every square!
The second design is Pie R Cowl–a cowl/shawlette that explores shaping in a fun way. I was playing around with the idea of a cowl that would lie flat around the shoulders but not flap around or slip off. The result is a combination of lace knitting, short row shaping, and a beautiful yarn that is a true hybrid.
Check them both out on my Ravelry shop here!
