Across the Pond Cowl

6.00

As I began dreaming up a cowl design for Spincycle's gorgeous yarn, I knew I wanted to create a mash up using two different techniques, and that at least one of the techniques involved colorwork. Spincycle's Dyed in the Wool yarn takes colorwork to the next level with the way it melts from one tone to the next. I love it! A cowl is the perfect canvas for trying out some new techniques, and mosaic knitting is a favorite of mine! My love for knitting drew me to the graphic herringbone stitch pattern you see in "Across the Pond." I love that it looks like big knit stitches! Mosaic knitting is also an awesome introduction to colorwork, as you are only ever dealing with one strand of yarn at a time. I also really love eyelets, and add them into patterns whenever I can! I found that the angles of the mosaic pattern balance out the round polka dots of the eyelets. Utilizing some different techniques and styles in this cowl also felt like a way to represent the colliding of two really awesome businesses - Spincycle Yarns & Loop London! The resulting cowl is so easy to wear. I love to thrown it on with jeans and a t-shirt, or dressed up with my favoritejacket. I hope you love it, too!!

*In purchasing this product you will receive a .pdf pattern for the pictured item so that you can knit them up yourself, not the actual finished item.
