Sneak Peak: Softest Cowl Ever Knit

Good morning from knitting nirvana. It’s all blissful wool fumes and roses over here (okay, tulips and irises…but roses soon enough!). My cowl is off the needles and blocked. Now all it needs is a fitting name for this super duper soft pattern and a proper photo shoot with my super hot knitwear model and beyond talented artist girlfriend @annasofie.  Details.

I can’t say enough good things about the Woolfolk Sno yarn I used, although I feel pretty confident this pattern will ultimately suit any fingering weight yarn. I have a wee ball leftover that I aspire to use for a knitted Easter bunny for Reed. I have my eye on this little guy. His name is Spearmint. (Awwww…) Easter is coming up quick, so I guess I better get on that!

This pattern combines a couple of different stitch patterns. It’s a metamorphosis of sorts. Kind of like spring. Rain turns to sun. Leaves bloom. Flowers blossom. Stagnation and sameness never work, especially in knitting (although I do love stockinette).

I hope to release this pattern soon, so stay tuned. I will be offering a special discount to subscribers (as well as a free gift!). If you aren’t already a subscriber, now is a good time to sign up. Check the upper right hand corner of the side bar for the right spot. All you have to do is enter your email. I promise to never share your email, and I won’t clutter your inbox. In addition to receiving regular blog posts in your inbox, I have lots of plans for free and discounted patterns to offer subscribers…plus some knitting resources I am developing. Progress is slow, but steady.

Dream big. Knit big. Cast on ever and always.

That’s my (new) motto.

Off I go to sniff more wool fumes. Don’t mind me…

    That yarn and cowl are lovely. Definitely swoonworthy! That little rabbit is adorable too. I think I have found a use for some of my ivory colored handspun yarn. Thanks for sharing.

    Oo, this looks as soft as you describe it. Oh wool, take me away! I hope you reference the yarn when you produce your pattern, so knuckleheads like me who won’t remember what you used get a gentle reminder. The pattern looks lovely 🙂
