Shifting Shadows Cowl Kit - from Twisted
The Earth and Moon each cast three shadows (umbral, penumbral, and antumbral) that drift across us to cause different kinds of eclipses. This seed stitch cowl pattern from Twisted blends three colors of lace weight yarn to create a shifting gradient fabric. It's a quick knit - worked flat then either seamed or grafted.
This cowl is worked with three strands of lace weight yarn held together. Each of the three colors must be split into three balls... which is a lot of winding. In this kit, we have done all the hard work for you and divided each of the three colors into three balls, making the gradient change a breeze.
Materials to make one double loop Shifting Shadows cowl as follows:
- printed copy of the free Shifting Shadows pattern from Twisted
- 3 balls of Malabrigo Lace - each split into 3 approximately equal balls
- packaged in a clear plastic box
YOU WILL ALSO NEED
- knitting needles for working flat (US #9/5.5 mm or size you need to get gauge)
- tapestry needle
- optional: scrap yarn (for provisional cast on)
- optional: blocking supplies
Don't see the colors you've been dreaming of? Check out all our Malabrigo Lace, or all our lace weight yarns. This pattern would also work up nicely in fingering weight yarn, though the finished object would be a bit bigger.
Please note that Malabrigo is dyed by hand and colors vary, sometimes significantly, from batch to batch. Your skeins will likely look different than (but similar to) the ones pictured.
