This pattern is what my friends and I call a “Showl” - a hybrid between a cowl and a shawl. It drapes nicely like a shawl without those crazy ends to worry about.
Designed to play with the colors included in my mini-skein set, “Beneath Wandering Thoughts”, which is inspired by my own original art of the same name.
“The Knitting Artist” mini-skein set of 5, each mini is 20g/92 yards. 2-ply fingering yarn, 75% SW Merino, 25% Nylon.
Shown with “Beneath Wandering Thoughts”
Amount of each yarn used:
Color A (Blue-Violet) - 20g ; Color B (Lt Pink) - 17g ; Color C (Green) - 20g ; Color D (Yellow) - 6g ;
Color E (Dk Pink) - 15g.
These numbers are rounded up from decimals, so please factor accordingly. I used almost all of my color A and color C. Pay attention as you go to avoid running out or plan to have extra yardage and/or another color. You are always welcome to use scraps, add more or less colors, and play with where you put each color. There is a coloring page at the end to help you sketch out ideas before starting.
US size 5, 16-24 in for body. Or size needed for gauge. May cast on with shorter needles if needed.
9 st and 5 rds = 1 inch in stockinette.
Gauge is only critical if you want a specific fit.
Must be able to knit, purl, yarn over, increase and decrease and understand written or charted instructions.
All pattern sections are easily explained and are really pretty easy!
