Modern Gingham

Have you all seen Emily's latest design?
Her Modern Gingham cowl seems like just the right kind of thing to be knitting in this heat! It's designed with Berroco Remix Light, a mix of all kinds of recycled and non-wooly fibers in a DK weight. The yarn has a really nice and interesting hand to it, and it's just right for this cowl.
The mix of fibers also gives the yarn a little bit of a tweed or faded denim look, which I really like, and I think it looks really cool in this low-key colorwork pattern. I love the gold, charcoal, and natural shades that Emily used for her sample...strong contrast and so classy.
If you want to try out some nice beginner colorwork this summer, the Modern Gingham is a great place to begin! Emily's pattern is for sale on Ravelry, and we can always help you purchase it in the shop if you prefer. We have a nice array of colors in the Remix Light, so stop by to choose your favorites!
