I love the Zigzag Scarf from Reversible Knits, one of my books, that uses 2 colors to create a flat rectangular scarf. But I was teaching this class at Vogue Knitting Live several months ago, and decided that I wanted to design a crescent-shape version that framed the neck nicely. So here is a modification that uses 2 yarns, maintains the zigzag shape, yet curves completely. So when you wear it as a cowl, it will lay flat.
I used 2 different Artyarns yarns for this. Beaded Silk Light in color H17 Gold, and Ensemble Light in color 918, which I held doubled.
I have set this up as a knitalong on Ravelry, which means that we will all be knitting it together, and the first installment of instructions goes out on April 15. If you’d like to join us, please sign up here:
Here are some photos of the cowl in progress:
I also decided to knit it using Zara Hand-Dyed in color Z16, with Tranquility in color T5. I love the color contrast here:
