Mixt

The Interweave Knits Weekend 2011 preview just went live, and I’m so happy to be in this issue. It is my first time in IK, actually, and it’s really just a simple little thing, but I’m still pretty proud! 

Mixt Cowl

I contributed an extra-long cowl that I am calling the Mixt Cowl. I used Berroco Boboli, and I had so much fun watching the colors change, it seemed like each stitch was a new color, some shiny, some matte, all of them fascinating. I chose a simple biasing lace stitch and watched the prismatic eyelets chase each other around and around. It took next to no time to knit because I could barely put it down. 

Mixt Cowl

The IK team placed it in a summer story and left it long and loose, which is exactly how I like to wear cowls in the warmer months, but I had a lot of fun playing around with this cowl before I mailed it off. It can easily be worn doubled or once around your neck and once over your head, like a Hollywood starlet in a vintage Roadster! If only…

There is a built in twist that will make this cowl look elegant with minimal fussing. Pick a color (or several, each colorway of Boboli seems to contain at least a dozen) and cast on!
