I finished the Colour Block Nomad Cowl a while ago and thought I ought to share a picture on the blog again as some of you asked aboput it. I did made a few modifications to the original pattern (Global-nomad-cowl by Helen Stewart) to accomodate as much of my yarn as possible. These were extra cast on stitches, some extra garter rows around the central eyelet pattern, which itself was repeated a few extra times.
Now I do love the original pattern and totally recommend it as easy TV knitting, but my yardage was somewhere inbetween the short and wide versions the pattern detailed and it was important to use every last scrap... because as you may remember this was a test skein for a new dye technique for me. I talk about this in some length in Podcast Episode 39.
So am I planning to dye up skeins for the shop in this colour block technique... why yes, I am! These will debut at the September shows and any remaining stock will hit www.sarastexturecrafts.com in October. So keep your eyes open!
Have a wonderful day... Sara x
