Coming soon: Cannon Beach Cowl

I fell in love with some yarn recently. It begged me to take it home from Knit Purl.

This is Woolfolk Får, a very soft worsted weight merino wool with a chainette/icord construction.

Look at that chainette! Yarn doesn’t always talk to me, but this one did, loud and clear. It said, “Design something with slip stitch and long threads showing on the right side, so you can see the chainette!” Well, of course.

This cowl knit up in a flash. It features seagulls and ocean waves.

See the chainette yarn structure? So lovely. So soft, too. It’s perfect in this cowl. But do you have to use this yarn for this project? Knitter’s choice! I love it, but I’m also knitting up a sample in Malabrigo Merino Worsted.

I’m curious about how it would look with a plyed yarn. More swatching is in order.

I’ve written up the pattern, and it’s off to the tech editor and a test knitter. Meanwhile, I’m still swooning. I love these stitch patterns; you know how I love elongated stitches. The pattern will be out soon. Do you subscribe to my email newsletter? Newsletter subscribers get discounts on newly released patterns. Comment below if you’d like to subscribe.

I think I have my Thanksgiving knitting cut out for me! When I’m not cooking…

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it. I’m thankful for family, friends, and fiber! And gravy. Mmmmm, gravy. What are you thankful for? (Or, more properly: For what are you thankful?)

  3. I LOVE that cowl!  What color is the blue? The white? There’s several blues, and several whites in that line. Is it one skein of each? Will it be on the GAL? I need to knit faster.   Leigh

    • The colors are 10 and 3; blue and gray. This 24″ cowl is one 50g hank of each; you’d probably want it to be a little bigger and that would need two of the blue. It’s not in the GAL sale because it’s not out yet, but it should be out soon, and then it’s eligible for participation in the GAL through the end of the year. GAL post coming tomorrow! (The links aren’t live yet, so I’m waiting to post.)
