Dianna Walla’s Leif Cowl puts the wild color shifts in Spincycle Dyed in the Wool front and center.
This is knitting at its most delicious: The Fair Isle pattern repeats 13 times in a round, meaning you can get a massive groove going on the simple colorwork and let the color changes unfold in whatever way fate and destiny and the universe allow them to.
So irregular and surprising and satisfying to knit.
