PATTERN DETAILS

The Chevron Sunshine Cowl is the third of three patterns designed especially for TEA+WOOL, the tea-dyed yarn I created for WORK+SHELTER. It's knit flat with an eyelet chevron pattern, and then seamed to create a cowl shape. It can be worn loose, or doubled up for extra warmth. A few months ago, Allyson Dykhuizen invited me to work on a new yarn dying project for WORK+SHELTER, called TEA + WOOL (http://www.etsy.com/shop/WorkShelterYarn). This 100% wool yarn was dyed with Indian teas, and is available in our Etsy shop, with all proceeds going to WORK+SHELTER. WORK+SHELTER is a new foundation started by Allyson's friend, Theresa VanderMeer. WORK+SHELTER offers women living in the slums of New Delhi a fresh start. Theresa is working to give these women decent living conditions and a chance to build a better future. WORK+SHELTER will be a safe place where women can come with their children to live and work. She will be providing training, materials, and a fair wage, and members of WORK+SHELTER will be producing products to be sold in boutiques around the world. I've designed a few accessories especially for TEA + WOOL that will be hand knit by the women living and working at WORK+SHELTER. The Chevron Sunshine Cowl is one of those accessories! By purchasing this pattern you are helping this amazing cause. Read more about this project here, donate by emailing Theresa, and when someone compliments you on your beautiful new cowl, be sure to tell them about WORK+SHELTER.

Hi, I'm Katie Canavan, a textile artist and designer who lives & works in Los Angeles. After watching my mom make quilts, I took a quilting class at age 8. The year was 1992 and I haven't stopped sewing since. I went to Michigan State University to study Acting & Costume Design, and I taught all my friends and roommates how to knit. I love to take something old - whether a bookcase or a vintage sheet - and give it new life. I'm inspired by nature & the nostalgic and I'm completely obsessed with color. You can visit my website for more info about me: katiecanavan.com. I'm half of Red Letter Day Stitches, and you can visit us online at www.redletterdaystitches.com.
