This cowl is worked in a hand-painted multi-color bulky yarn on a circular needle. The green berries create scattered clusters, and encourage the swirl effect of the remaining pink and orange yarn.
Let's admit it: Multi-color variegated yarn is tricky to knit. Sometimes it is easiest to abandon ship and leave it as yarn. But don't do that. Come join me at Slater Mill in Pawtucket, Rhode Island on Saturday, January 17 for "A Dozen Ways to use Variegated Yarn". We will learn this and many other tricks, tips, and techniques.
I am thrilled to be a part of Knitting Weekend, January 16-18, along with Adrienne Martini, Amy Christoffers, Thea Colman, Bristol Ivy, and Gudrun Johnston. (I know!) Check out the classes and weekend events here. Slater Mill and the Trad Arts Learning Center go above and beyond to make an intimate and memorable experience for the student, and it all happens in a restored mill. Be still my heart.
