Packed with colour!

Here’s my latest design, the Seaside Flower Wall Cowl! Its available on Ravelry and LoveCrafts. The amazing palette of colours available in Jamieson & Smith 2ply Jumper Weight allowed me to create a small piece, packed with bright colours. It’s worked in the round, so colourwork is only done on the right side – so much easier!. Using this wonderful Shetland yarn means that the cowl virtually stands up on its own, and there’ll be no flopping which would hide the lovely pattern. Winter is approaching here, so I’ll be getting plenty of opportunity to wear this cheerful cowl, but if Summer is very slowing reaching you, there’s still time to make one for chilly Spring weather!

Seaside Flower Wall Cowl

This design comes in one size, with a circumference of 62cm (24 1/2 in) and Height of 23cm (9 in).

The contrast colours can be from scraps you may have leftover, as there’s only about 30 metres of each contrast colour used. You’ll need 2 x 25 gram balls (only around 156 metres) of the Main colour.

Visit the pattern page on Ravelry for more details!

It’s available to buy for $5.50 USD.
