They say that knitting is therapeutic but I had never experienced that for myself until I made this cowl. It’s knit from a beautiful handspun single-ply yarn which was custom dyed for me by the wonderful Zoë of HelloMango.co.uk. A simple pattern involving rounds of knits and purls lends itself to the vibrancy of the yarn, and I feel that the cowl bears a very organic structure, perhaps due to the colours. The wiggly purl lines in the thick-and-thin yarn seemed to resemble caterpillars and I look forward to wearing this on autumn days and winter afternoons to come.
