Designed to release for Zombie Knitpocalypse 2020, in collaboration with Queen City Yarn. Choose a skein of Biddleville DK HERE! Let’s knit together during ZK2020 @ HOME!!

I designed this reversible cowl to showcase a special souvenir skein of DK yarn. This project started as a release for the Zombie Knitpocalypse 2020 retreat, an event I cherish every year, filled with friends, laughter, food, knitting, and fun. In these times of physical distancing, you and a friend can make matching cowls with the same or different colorways, and give each other a virtual hug on your next video chat! It is worn close to the neck, as though the piece is giving you a virtual hug. Flip to the reverse or style it upside down for a modified look.

I hope you have fun knitting and wearing your AIR HUGS COWL.
