Nesting Cowl by Elizabeth Morrison
This breathtakingly soft cashmere-blend yarn has met its match in the Nesting Cowl, which features a sophisticated stranded colorwork pattern. Using only 2 yarns at a time, a semi-solid and a gradient, the cowl shifts through the different colors of the gradient for effortless fair-isle-looking complexity with none of the yarn tails to sew in at the end! It's a colorwork pattern that is rhythmic and can be quick to memorize.
"This cowl would make a great first stranded knitting project for a developing knitter. Each round is either a 2-2 or 4-4 repeat of the color pattern. What could be easier? Of course, it’s so fun that knitters of all skill levels will enjoy it.
Don’t be intimidated by the fine gauge. The knitting goes quickly and everyone will admire your work wherever you knit."--from the designer
The finished cowl measures about 12.5” tall and 21” around.
The stranded motif is charted only.
This yarn is ready to ship from our studio to your favorite knitting chair.
The Nesting cowl is designed by Elizabeth Morrison. This yarn pack includes:
- (1) 37g gradient cake in the colorway Flower Power (1/2 of one of our medium sock sets
- (1) 50g semi-solid cake in the colorway The Sensible Ms. Dashwood
Sizing: The pack includes enough yarn to make one cowl. This cowl is designed to fit somewhat closely around the neck. If you prefer a looser fit, you can add more repeats in multiples of 8 sts. Unless you also plan to use more yarn, this will result in a shorter cowl.
Yarn Base: Opulence - fingering (80% superwash Merino/10% cashmere/10% nylon) - 440 yards/100g. Next-to-skin soft.
This yarn pack does not include the pattern. Please find and purchase your pattern here, where you can easily download the pattern to your Ravelry library at the same time.
