The first of a few patterns I’ve designed is out today! Let me introduce the Stagger Ribbed Cowl.
This was a sneak design. I started with the task of knitting a sample for my LYS store for an upcoming class – the Stagger Cowl in the Knitscene Accessories issue.
As I knit the cowl, I realized that the simple stitch pattern would lend itself to a lovely hat, and since stitch patterns are not part of copyright, I created a pattern for a hat to be used either in combination with the cowl, or stand-alone. This cowl is a great introduction to cables, as the cable stitches are in only 2 of the 20 rounds of the stitch pattern. See how pretty the stitches are?
