My Double Basketweave Cowl knitting pattern is one of my favorites and thus one of the first I'm offering as a kit! It's an easy-to-memorize, worked-in-the-round, knits-and-purls stitch pattern. Combine that with Sincere Sheep's Luminous yarn — a naturally dyed, cuddly, Polwarth wool–Tussah silk blend, held double — and what you've got is comfort knitting. It's also a project suitable for newer knitters.
We're offering the kit in two color options: Anja (indigo-dyed* semi-solid) and Bare (undyed/natural). Either of them will look great for years to come.
The kit itself makes a great gift for a knitter, or use it to knit a finished cowl for yourself or a loved one.
- designed by Karen Templer and professionally tech-edited
- this is a knitting kit (not a finished cowl)
- kit contains one printed pattern and two skeins of DK-weight yarn (4 oz/330 yards each) in a Fringe Supply muslin project bag
- yarn is undyed or naturally dyed, 85% Polwarth wool, 15% Tussah silk
No two monitors display color the same, and no two skeins of hand-dyed yarn are identical either. The real color may vary slightly from what you see on your screen.
*When using indigo-dyed yarn, as with a new pair of blue jeans, there will be some color transfer. Expect your hands to turn slightly blue while knitting (it washes right off) and for the soak water to turn blue when blocking the finished piece. After that, the dye should be set.
