Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.
This cowl was designed by Janet Avila for the 2018 Chicago Yarn Crawl. The stitch pattern is a meditative sequence, so your mind can rest on the story and softness of the yarn.
- 75 yards June Cashmere DK yarn in slate, curry, black cherry (225 yards total)
June Cashmere’s 100% cashmere fiber is collected directly from Kyrgyz shepherds living on small family farms along the ancient Silk Road amidst the soaring mountains of Central Asia. This company actively invests in the communities where the cashmere is gathered and seeks to make Kyrgyz cashmere an engine for social and economic transformation.
- Slipped stitches draw the fabric in. For that reason, you use a much bigger needle in that section so that the gauge matches that of the ribbing. Of course, you may need to adjust needle size based on your knitting.
- The colorwork is achieved with a slipped stitch, so only one color is worked in any round.
You will also need:
16” circular needles Size 8 and Size 10.5 (or size to achieve gauge)
Stitch marker, tapestry needle
Finished Dimensions: Approximately 9” high by 24” around
