Disclaimer: I’m cheating on FO Friday. I didn’t actually knit this cowl, a friend of mine, who is also an awesome sample knitter, knit this for me. But it is finished, and it is Friday. It might have been finished on a Friday, but if it was it wasn’t this one. Ok, now that I’ve cleared my conscience I can continue with the blog post!
I published a new pattern yesterday, the Creedmoor Cowl. This cowl is perfect for using up that one skein of beautiful hand painted sock yarn that’s just far too special to be hidden in shoes as socks. We all have those odd skeins of beautiful hand dyed yarns, and really, how many shawlette can one girl wear? Cowls are far more practical.
This stitch pattern is super versatile, and great for breaking up color pooling. In my sample I used a skein of Galloping Jester Goldilocks, a new small hand dyer in New Hampshire. As a special offer to you, the lovely readers of Mari Knits, Jennifer from Galloping Jester has offered free shipping to all yarn purchases through Oct 31. Just use the code SHIPFREE at checkout! For Canada and other international orders please use the code SHIPFAR.
I didn’t think writing the cowl for just fingering weight yarn was enough though, so I’ve also included information for knitting this cowl (or infinity scarf!) in sport, DK, and worsted weight yarns. Because hand painted yarns come in all shapes and sizes!
Here are a few extra photos of the pattern, that didn’t make the cut to the Ravelry page.
And finally, the cowl with a yeti.
