Project of the Month: Pacific Arches Cowl

March 2, 2018

As the grey days continue through this typical Vancouver winter, I seek the comfort of a little bit of luxury, and there’s nothing better than a merino/cashmere/nylon cowl to cut through this cold. Victoria-based designer Andrea Rangel recently launched a knit that pays homage to Seattle architecture, and the yardage of the sport-weight wool required for her new pattern makes our Wollmeise Blend a perfect match to this classic and somewhat nostalgic piece.

 

Pacific Arches Cowl is knit as a tube in the round, making a squishy and beautifully weighted neckwarmer. With its neo-gothic motifs, this simple two-string colourwork piece creates an eye-catching work of wearable art.

 

 

We love our Rohrspatz und Wollmeise yarns with their incredible yardage and stitch definition. Come in to check out our wall of Wollmeise, as we are proud to hold one of the largest collections of this amazing yarn in Canada.

      She did! I believe it is a modified version of the Tin Can Knits Flax Light in Julie Asselin’s Fino yarn. Gorgeous, huh?
