I'm Alex Tinsey and I design stuff! I like simple textures and interesting shapes. I like soft wools and kettle-dyes. I like ice cream. Addis. Hats. Spinning. Ducklings. And I like you too, sugar cheeks. I can?t say I care for bio-writing, though. Boring stuff: I graduated with a degree in psychology (still in mint condition!) from Reed College, after dinking around at the Pacific Northwest College of Art and Kenyon College for a while. I've been knitting since about 2004, designing since about 2006. I was making up my very own garter stitch squares and randomly-decreased hats before that, but I won't count it. I've had patterns published in Knitty, Knit Simple, the Knit Picks Independent Designer Program, and Interweave Knits, though I generally go the self-publishing route.View all patterns by designer (24) »
Chevzam features dead simple colorwork that looks far more complex than it is thanks to frequent color changes and a graphic, chevron motif. The floats on the back provide a double thick layer of cozy Malabrigo Merino for the ultimate in cheery winter luxury, and the color combinations are endless!
Note: If your ribbing gauge is much larger than your colorwork gauge (which it will be for many people) you may wish to go down a needle size for the ribbing in order to prevent flaring.
ALSO: This pattern does require the knitter to work from a chart.
This cowl matches the Zam Hat!
