I have been artistic all my life, but no medium has obsessed me more than knitting. I live with my needles in hand! After leaving a career in social work, I decided to make fiber art central in my life. I got started in the fiber craft industry managing Mary Maxim Boutique in Toronto and as a Designer Assistant for Americo Original. In May 2012, I moved to Guelph, Ontario to further pursue an artistic life. As a newer indie designer, I am building my brand, Ash Kearns Handknitting and publishing regularly. I currently display my designs and teach regularly in Guelph, Ontario at All Strung Out Fine Yarns.
Shhh! It's not fairisle! The amazing "Techni-Cowl" is deceptively simple and fun to work in the mosaic knitting technique. A solid color yarn and Noro work together to fantastic technicolor effect. Try two similar shades for more a monochromatic look or two color changers for a really psychedelic knitting experience!
Knitted in the round, the Technicolor Mosaic Cowl has a fluted base that is shaped by changing to a larger needle size for the last couple of pattern repeats. Since Noro does all the color changing, this project has no finishing or multiple ends to sew in. Specific instruction is given on how to follow a simple chart, so this is a great first-time mosaic knitting project!
