When Kim from Kim Dyes Yarn asked me if I would create a Golden Girls inspired pattern for her to take to VKL New York, I immediately said yes, of course! Kim’s yarn is absolutely lovely, and she is one of the best Indie Dyers that I’ve ever had the privilege of calling a friend. This fun set makes up a beautiful cowlette, a mix between a shawl and a cozy cowl that stays in place, while providing just a pop of color mixed with texture to keep the knitting interesting. Whether you knit this up for yourself or to gift to a friend, is up to you, but you won’t be disappointed either way!
