close knit: the neighborhood yarn shop

Thursday, January 3, 2019


Look at this super cool cowl from Portland designer Renate Yerkes!
She uses a double-knitting technique to create a fabric with two sides for her Arvingen cowl. So on this side, the background is blue and the deer is mottled, but the colors are reversed on the inside. Double-knitting is a fun technique and it works really well for fun colorwork designs like this one.

Renate used the Plymouth Yarns Worsted Superwash Merino in solids and hand-dyes to create this look. Can you see how the speckled hand-dyed yarn works with the colorwork? I never would have thought to try that, but I love how it turned out. This pattern is available through Ravelry and we have the yarns in stock!
