Lift Your Spirits!
Thanks for your interest in this pattern. It is Darn Knit Anyway’s, Darn Yarn Club pattern for April, 2014. Please contact the shop for details about the yarn club.
The beauty of freshly fallen snow is a treasure. Even at the end of winter, when we’ve had an abundance of the white stuff, there is always something magical about the way new snow sparkles in the sun or moonlight. That is the inspiration for the lightweight, sparkly yarn for the Darn Yarn Club’s April yarn.
When I was asked to write a pattern for the April yarn, I was excited about the idea of a knit moebius with optional beading, throughout some of the rounds. The Moebius has a 180-degree twist, which is created at the join of the special cast on. (See below) Rounds of knitting grow from the center of the work to the outsides. Moebius cowls are among my favorite things to knit as the stitches quickly travel through the needles in a mesmerizing path.
Including simple and optional beadwork adds another dimension of joy to the knitting experience. The result is an uncomplicated, lightweight, lacy, easily beaded moebius cowl design in a wool/bamboo blend yarn from Phydeaux Designs, which will lift your spirits. I hope you enjoy the pattern.
With an abundant circumference of approximately 72”, the Lift Your Spirits! moebius cowl is meant to wrap double or triple at the neck. It is 7” deep. Other sizing options are included in the pattern.
Size 5 circular needles in 47” length are required for optimum comfort.
