In the summer, I prefer my projects small (they don’t overheat my lap), fast (heat = no patience), and easy (my brain seems to slow as the humidity rises). I wanted something simple to showcase some super bulky handspun that just came off my wheel. This cowl is pretty much just a long rectangle of zigzag stockinette stitch that is seamed closed, so I can’t really call it a pattern or a design as much as a fun and useful swatching exercise :)

Pendant l’été, je préfère les petits projets qui ne surchauffent pas les genoux et qui ne demandent pas trop d’attention, puisque mon habileté cérébrale diminue à mesure que l’humidité augmente. Ce col est tricoté avec une laine très grosse et profite d’un patron jersey zigzag qui mettra en valeur une laine spéciale :)
