This design, The Shift by Andrea Mowry is simply lovely!
Here is what she writes about it:
This cowl is the perfect all-the-time accessory! And the answer for all of those knitters out there who love to knit shawls, but have a hard time styling them. A fun and engaging knit with shifting colors, that looks like an asymmetrical triangle shawl, and it only takes a fiddle-free second to throw it on as the finish to every outfit!
And as I was looking over the lovely designs in her Project Pages I noticed quite a few knitters made this using Schoppel's Edition 3. And an idea was born!
First of all, please plan on getting the pattern via the designer's Ravelry page here. What we offer on this web page is simply your choice of any (or all) of 5 different colorways of Edition 3!
This is not the same yarn as Andrea used for her original cowl. You can see ours in the inset photo on the top picture and again below that. The photos of her cowl are shown here so you can get an idea of the design.
Edition 3 is a DK weight yarn, plied, with long color runs. Made of 100% merino, each 50g ball has 164 yards(150 meters).
Now take a look at these lovely finished cowls here. Each has used one or more balls of Edition 3, most of them using three balls (one of each of three different colorways).
I include this link so you can feel inspired and get ideas for the use of colors.
We brought in these for you to choose from:
1. Tante Emma (Aunt Emma) is a beautifully rich mix of colors, each gradually changing one into the next. The main colors include purples, violets, fuchsia, red, orange, and gold.
(These projects all used at least one ball of Tante Emma.)
2. Englischer Garten (English Garden) is mostly llighter hues, including sky blue, lilac, lime, strawberry and goldenrod among others.
(Here is one project that used Englischer Garten, as well as Tante Emma.)
3. Waschtag (oddly enough this translates into English as Washing Day) is lovely cool tones of blues and greens.
(You can see that Waschtag was used in these projects.)
4. Warmebild (Warm Image) is a deep mix of rust with charcoal and includes striking spans of gold and red as well.
5. Taupunkt (Dew Point) is another lighter blend, including mostly pink and gray, yellow and chartreuse.
(I found these projects all used at least one Taupunkt.)
Choose your colorways, choose you number of balls, and the rest will come together beautifully!
