tell the yarn who’s boss,
then watch what happens next.
you’ll have to keep your eye on it (the pooling),
but it will be so worth it!
as an added bonus, once the knitting is done you can easily change the overall look of things. the same cowl, folded differently, is shown in both the 2nd and 3rd photos. in the 2nd photo, it’s folded lengthwise with the solid sections at the long edges. in the 3rd photo, it’s folded lengthwise with the speckled sections at the long edges. in the 1st photo, the cowl is folded half and half so that both options show. ta-da!
note: this pattern was designed to work specifically with the fiber seed’s ‘sprout worsted’. to recreate the pooling shown, you will need to use that particular yarn.
