(P)inspirational – Cowls


In my previous post, I talked about my current obsession with cowls. There are so easy and versatile to wear. Plus are great in the colder weather.

First up the beatiful patterned cowl , Chevzam. Made using Malabrigo Worsted, one of my go-to yarns to make winter accessories with. As Malabrigo is currently available in over 70 solid colours. There are numerous colour combinations you could create. The clever use of colours and simple changes make this pattern look striking. And it could be a great introduction to intarsia (colour work) knitting.

One of my guilty pleasure TV programmes is Once Upon A Time.  I adore all of Mary Margaret’s clothes especially her knitwear. She has some amazing hats! When discussing knitting with a friend last week. She showed me this Mary Margaret cowl she was working on. It is inspired by an outfit from the show. She also told me about a ravelry group devoted to knitwear from the show.

Finally, this pattern seemed to keep popping up on my Instagram feed. So I’m guessing it’s going to be popular this autumn. The lace panel can be worked with or without beads. The project looks amazing in either a sock yarn or lace weight.
