PATTERN DETAILS

This cowl is named for the hedgerow bounty we would bring home from our weekend excursions. My Mom would cook the berries into a delicious jam that could sparkle just as red as the raspberries beckoning between the green leaves, or be dark and jewel toned when there were more blackberries in the mix. Worked entirely in Mosaic, a slipped stitch colorwork technique, you will ever only have to use one color at a time, making this the perfect and easy intro to working with two colors! Wear this cowl open like a long scarf or wrap it twice for more warmth. With all the different ways to button it and wear it, it won't get boring and will adapt to almost any temperature! Yarn: Malabrigo Rios (100% Merino, 210 yards/192 meters, 3.5 oz/100gr) 2 skeins each color A (Lettuce ) and color B (Jupiter) (If you make the border just one color, you can get away with using 2 skeins one color and only one of the 'not border' color.)

I am originally from Switzerland, but live in the US since ‘99. I have been knitting since I was about five years old and I mostly make my own designs and patterns. I started designing my own sweaters and accessories at an early age, as that was just the way sweaters where done. Only later did I transition to indulging in the luxury of ready-made patterns. I used to design and make mostly sweaters and other cold weather favs, (I did come from a snowy place, after all) but have fallen head over heels for lace shawls and have not looked back since! You can see more of my designs under OwlCat Designs on Ravelry. Thanks for your interest in my patterns and I hope you enjoy knitting the designs as much as I did making them for you! :)
