Sometimes, less is more. Yes, really, even I do say that! :-) Grab a skein with wonderful colors and pair it with a simple, yet effective, stitch pattern and you’ve got a winning combination! And a super quick knit! This is what the Lismoor cowl is all about.
I’m sure that you once fell in love with a beautifully hand-dyed skein, packed with colors. Lively, rich, exuberant! And then? Did you dare using it? How to do the yarn justice? I fell in love with many skeins and I wondered how to let them shine to their full potential. The Lismoor cowl does just that. It uses an all-over reversible textured pattern combined with some eyelets just for fun. So yes, less is more, but a sophisticated less, please!
