The pattern is for 2 sizes: Cowl and Loop. Instructions are given for 2 yarn weights: DK and Fingering. It's a great pattern for stash-busting and using up variegated yarns. A few years ago several of our local SnB members (myself included) purchased these beautiful variegated skeins of Malabrigo Silky Merino. A few years passed, and we still had no idea what to make with them. Each is so different from the other, and each is beautiful in its own way. So, after fiddling with many, many stitch patterns and needle sizes, I finally came up with a good combination of yarn, needle size/gauge, and pattern! Instructions are given in written and chart form.

My grandmothers were the reason I love hand-work and crafts so much. As soon as I was able to manage a needle and thread, they gave me craft-related responsibilities abound. My earliest crafting photo is me at 5 years old sitting atop a table making a foam cake base in deep concentration, craft glue in one hand and crepe paper in the other. Now, I'm an illustrator and designer with dabblings in knitwear design and typography.
