Hi Fiber Friends!
This is Evelyn, the newest Loops Store Shepherdess. Shelly Brander of KnitStars and Loops Yarn Store posted this on her weekly newsletter. I had to grab it and show all of you!
I was strolling down the page and saw Evelyn. I was thinking, ” What a pretty lady.” when I spotted that cowl and was gobsmacked at how pretty it was! I was like, “Wowwwww, that is so pretty. Those colors look like my Dijon Mustard and Robin’s Egg…..Holy Toledo!! Those are my colors! That’s my yarn!
Ev had whipped up her own version of Susan B. Anderson’s Barrett Cowl, using two skeins of Bulky.
Ev has made this cowl multiple times, in various gauges. It’s a simple fisherman’s rib pattern that even beginners can handle! You can also find a video tutorial on Susan B. Anderson’s blog or YouTube channel.
To make Evelyn’s version, you need one skein x 2 colors of ACTK Bulky. NOTE: For this super-quick version, use a #11 needle, cast on 64 stitches and follow the pattern for the depth of the cowl and when to change colors.
I just had to share. If you don’t know about KnitStars or Loops, please look them up. The KnitStars program is amazing and every knitter and crocheter should sign up. They are entertaining, informative, and educational.
I’m at the dye pots today, so I need to get back to them. I wanted to show off the lovely Evelyn and her gorgeous cowl.
Happy Knitting Friends!
Much Love and Many Blessings to you!
