I had the chance to meet and take a class with Maggie Casey. She shared quite a bit of wisdom during our chats but her #1 piece of advice for spinners is to knit with your handspun. From this inspiration, I designed this pattern to encourage new spinners to knit with their handspun and experienced spinners to dig deep and knit with some of the early handspun they never thought they’d use. To that end, this pattern is written for a variety of yarn weights, from Sport to Bulky. I knit the samples using some of my earliest handspun (pink) and some of my most recent (gray).

Although this pattern was designed with hand spinners in mind, I have done the math so this pretty little cowl can be worked in just about any yarn - handspun or commercial. The stitch pattern is unique and interesting but not difficult so enjoy the making.

This pattern can be made from about any handspun or commercial yarn that meets the yarn amount minimums as follows:
Bulky: At least 150 yards (137.5 Meters)
Worsted: At least 185 yards (169 Meters)
DK: At least 210 yards (192 Meters)
Sport: At least 255 yards (233 Meters)
