New Pattern

in Blog, Knitting, My Patterns, Neck, Spinning by oftengrumpy

The Sylvan Cowl pattern that I showed you guys earlier this month is not available on Ravelry for $2.00.

It’s an infinity cowl that can be wrapped twice around the head as show above or worn as one long loop, more like a scarf.  I originally created the pattern because I didn’t know what to do with some sport weight handspun I’ve had for months.  The yarn was extremely soft so I knew I wanted it around my neck, but the heathered tweedy color made it look very rustic.  I couldn’t find a pattern that was both interesting to knit and worked with the yarn.  I tried lace but the delicate look of the lace didn’t seem right with the hearty look of the yarn.  This was my solution.  It’s interesting enough to knit since you’re changing what you’re doing every few rounds, but the pattern doesn’t overpower the yarn.

This is Knitgeneering’s test knit version of the pattern.  I think she made it so beautiful.  Her yarn is exactly the type this pattern was made for.
 
Every few rounds there is something different going on–garter stitch, stockinette stitch, eyelet panels.  Even though it’s knit in sport weight it goes very quickly.  Mine only took about two afternoons.  You can get it through Ravelry as linked at the beginning of the post, or you can buy it here but clicking on the design tab up top and click on the “buy now” button.  Hope you like it!
