We have a new kit for a close- fitting colourwork cowl designed to celebrate the launch of John Arbon’s new Yarn, ‘Yarnadelic’. Fabienne has kindly created a version that is very much knit in 'Loop' colours!
The close-fitting cowl was inspired by the vibration of sound through air, 70s psychedelia, and the crackling white noise that can be heard when tuning an analog radio. This is a homage to what originally inspired John Arbon to create the colours and names of this yarn, which is grounded in music.
The cowl is worked lengthwise in stranded colourwork in the round and then either grafted together for a seamless finish or joined using mattress stitch. The pattern on the outside, ‘Soundwave’, looks more complicated than it is and will soon become intuitive but never boring. The optional ‘Static’ pattern on the inside of the cowl offers a meditative break from the larger-scale outside pattern. The stripes in the background can be customised to taste for a more or less psychedelic knitting experience – a blank graph to help with colour choices is included in the pdf pattern which is available on Ravelry in the link below.
This cowl is reversible and absolutely stunning as well as being cozy and a joy to knit.
Each kit includes;
1 full-size skein and 2 -50gram cakes of John Arbon's Yarnadelic (100% Wool - Corriedale,364 yards / 333 meters,100 grams) and a Loop cotton shopper/project bag for your WIP.
* The pattern is not included in the kit but is available through Fabienne's Ravelry shop.
