What is romantic friendship you say? Well, in this context it is a cozy cowl for wearing around your neck, but in the bigger sense Romantic Friendship it is a concept of deep friendship based around a deep connected love.
I first heard about the concept from my friend aly (who is featured as the lovely for this pattern model). She read me a chapter of bell hook’s book Communion: The Female Search for Love in the car on the way home from somewhere. It resonated with me in my search for love (see All About Love, my other bell hooks inspired pattern) so I decided to name this pattern after the concept.
Anyway, this cowl is great for beginners, it can be worn by oneself (Romantic Love yourself. Naughty) or you can decide to give it to a best friend to show your love for them!
It’s also just an example of how this lovely barber pole yarn knits up. I’ve used Cascade Eco +, and triple stranded one ball to make this beauty. I’ve also used a little bit of other colours (in a galway worsted) to add a bit of colour & interest. Extra colours are optional.
If you’re looking for a quick, easy, cheap-to-knit pattern to use your 15mm needles, this is the one!
Thanks to friends and fans for the support they’ve offered me in publishing my patterns!
