Matching accessories have become kind a big thing for me. When I’m wrapped in the warmth of a comfy hand knit hat, a cozy hand knit cowl, and toasty hand knit mitts, I like them to match, or complement each other, either by sharing the same stitch pattern or being worked in the same yarn. When my knitted accessories complement each other it allows each piece to stand out without competing against the other accessories that I’m wearing. Matching accessories make me look more polished and put together, even on days when I might not feel very polished or put together. So, I’m on a mission to create sets of matching knitwear accessories in my favourite colours using my favourite yarns and stitch patterns.

The Juniper collection includes socks, a cowl, hat and mitts. I chose this specific yarn because it’s one of the softest, squishiest yarns that I’ve ever had the pleasure to knit with and it feels divine against my skin. Also this bluish/purple that Nicole (the dyer at Spinnacle) created, really reminds me of the juniper berries that were on the juniper bushes outside of our house when I was growing up.

Juniper cowl is worked in the round from the bottom up. Instructions are included to modify both the length and height of the cowl.
