I released a new pattern last week, and it’s not a shawl.
It’s a cowl! When I chose the yarn for this project, I saw that there was some variegation in the color so I wanted to use stitch patterns that would work with the colors.
Eyelet ribbing and a slipped stitch cable frame a center panel of daisy stitch. The daisy stitch gives the cowl lots of fun texture and all of the stitch patterns work to break up any weirdness that might happen with variegated yarn. The stitch pattern is a simple 4 row repeat, and I found that after just a few repeats, I had the pattern memorized and could knit without the pattern. It was a great project for sitting and watching Netflix.
The yarn is Fiberstory One DK. This yarn base is new and isn’t listed in her store, but it’s a great yarn. It’s a single ply that is spun thick and thin. It reminded me a lot of Malabrigo Worsted, just at a lighter weight. One of my test knitters used Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sport and hers turned out great.
