From the brilliant needles of Sivia Harding, we put together kits for her Brambleberry Cowl.
Here is what Sivia writes:
The Brambleberry Cowl is a warm, light-as-air cowl that doubles as a generously shaped hooded cape. ...(T)he cowl’s surprising textures will fascinate you from beginning to end. The stitch pattern allows the cowl to stretch to fit most body types.
The Yarn and Colorways
Well, we aren't offering the exact yarns that Sivia used but the knitting will keep you intrigued and the finished cowl will be warm and delicious.
You can see what we have in the inset photo on the top picture and again below that.
We have put together kits with a background of a Malabrigo Sock yarn of 100% superwash merino (440 yards/ 100g).
The Sock yarn is in the almost-solid tonal colorway called Pearl, a grey-ish-with-violet-overtones. This will, of course, not give you a gradient look in the gray sections but it will look superb regardless.
With it we add a delightful set of yarns from Lorna's Laces, one of their Quintet sets with 5 mini-skeins of Shepherd Sock, each 80% merino/ 20% nylon x 5 small skeins of 107 yards/ 25g (each set with a total of 535 yards(489 meters)/ 125 grams).
This String Quintet set is called Marimba and includes beautiful mini-skeins in the purple and rose family which looks great with the Pearl yarn. I see a deep purple, a magenta, a fuschia, a rose, and a pink. You can line them up in whatever order you prefer to knit them in.
The pattern has not been figured to be included automatically in this kit.
You can get the pattern directly from Sivia on her Ravelry page. This will save it in your Ravelry library and ensure you get any updates as soon as released.
Or if you prefer I can email it to you once the kit is packaged up. There is that option via the drop-down menu above.
We could even print out a hard copy for you.
Just select via the "Pattern" drop-down menu the form that suits you best. (If you are going to get it directly from Nim on Ravelry, set the drop-down menu here to "No Pattern Needed.")
