Really, what more do we need in life apart from some magic, ice cream and gorgeous yarn to knit up?

This fun cowl utilizes planned pooling to magicly make the colors from the hand-dyed yarn line-up exactly the way that you want… Without swatching. You heard correctly, no swatching and no matching the designer’s gauge (unless for some reason you really want to). And because you really do need some delicious ice cream to go along with this knitting magic, I suggest using the very dreamsicle-esqe Good Vibrations colorway from Three Irish Girls to make your cowl and spread happiness everywhere you go!

The body of the cowl is knit in the Waffle Cone Lace stitch pattern and is finished with a simple picot edge on either side. This pattern does use a provisional cast-on and I highly recommend using the crochet hook method for this as it lends itself very nicely to the techniques used to begin your cowl without making a gauge swatch.

The kit from includes:

  • 1 Skein of Three Irish Girls Adorn Luxe in the Good Vibrations colorway
  • 1 Printed Copy of the Magic and Ice Cream Knitting Pattern
  • 1 Digital Copy of the Magic and Ice Cream Knitting Pattern

Curious about that adorable unicorn in the photos?
That little guy is the free gift that is included with the Club Yumi Subscription kits in June and he’s sure to bring some extra magic (and cuteness!) to your knitting projects. He’s handmade by my friend, Jensen Reyes (aka: Truffleshuffler ), and is sold individually in her etsy shop: Truffle’s Shuffle. She has lots of super adorable creations (including magical unicorn poop!) and is one of the nicest people that I know. Please pop by her shop and check out all the amazing things that she’s making with polymer clay. ^_^

Special thanks to jenknittingaround for her excellent skills as tech editor for this pattern!
