Spirit Within Me Cowl

Spirit Within Me Cowl_1

The Spirit Within Me Cowl by Shay Hobbs gives you the opportunity to create amazing color combinations.  The pattern calls for three different colors but you could also get away with just two different colorways by repeating the first color at the end.  Lindsey also decided to alter the pattern a little at the end creating an i-cord bind off which I think works well.  The pattern was inspired by a beautiful photo of Colorado landscape and would be the perfect addition to your fall wardrobe.  Lindsey used two colors of Malabrigo Rios and a bit of Tosh DK for her bind off.

Spirit Within Me Cowl_3

We just received a new Malabrigo shipment so there is lots of Rios to choose from.  This would also be a fantastic stash buster if you have a fantastic multi-color and two complimenting solids.  The cowl is designed to be large with some extra drape, but it could also be worn pulled down over your shoulders.  Check out this pattern on Ravelry by clicking here.  -B

Phaedra

Phaedra Cowl_2

I never get tired of knitting, I mean literally knitting miles of stockinette stitch and that’s part of the reason I love this cowl.  Using 600 yards of lace weight yarn and a size 5-24″ needle you will cast on and knit and knit and knit, changing colors as you go creating a dark to light cowl that can be wrapped double or worn long.

Phaedra Cowl

I love how the striping reverses from thick black stripes to light stripes and depending on how you double wrap the cowl, you can get different looks while wearing it.  This is a great project to add to your fall wardrobe, its not super thick and heavy but will definitely keep you warm as the weather begins to cool down.  Michael used two balls of Findley by Juniper Moon.  This gorgeous lace weight is a blend of 50% merino and 50% silk, the silk adds a gentle shimmer and creates a very soft, luxurious, drapey project.

Phaedra Cowl_1

We over 10 colors to mix and match in stock here at the store I know there are some great color combinations just waiting to be knit.  We also have the free pattern available, come by and check it out. -B
