Feathers Hat is now live!

The Feathers Cowl is a stranded color work cowl, knit in the round. The feathers are like stained glass--using a gradient or handspun yarn for the feather, and a solid color yarn for the outline. This is the perfect pattern to explore all the possibilities of Spincycle yarns, your own handspun, gradient yarns, or even bits and pieces from your stash. It is knit in a tube, twisted to become a moebius, and the ends are then grafted using Kitchener stitch..

Yarn: Spincycle Dyed in the Wool, 400 yards/2 skeins (Sample uses Devilish Grin and Stay out of the Forest); Quince & Co. Finch or Chickadee, 350 yards/2 skeins (Sample uses Finch in color Bark) (I like to err on the side of too much yarn, to adjust for personal knitting differences.)

Gauge is not critical, although size may vary if your gauge isn’t close. In this pattern, it is more important to work for smooth fabric than perfect gauge.

These feathers are just begging for adventurous colorwork.
