Bremerton Shawlette Cowl

    The Bremerton Shawlette Cowl is a perfect for those single skeins of fingering that were too beautiful to pass up at your LYS. This shawlette cowl is great for accessorizing in colder weather and will keep your neck warm under cardigans and jackets.

    The Bremerton Shawlette Cowl is initially worked like a triangular shawl and then joined in the round to become a cowl.

    I incorporated everything I love about shawls into this design. I love simple mesh lace which is accentuated with a contrasting color. It has a picot bind-off which polishes the laciness of the shawlette. The garter body of the shawlette is a must with many traditional shawls and shows the color of the hand-dyed yarn beautifully. The garter of the body is broken up with a simple lace that travels along the spine of the triangular shawl shape.

    I love shawlette cowls because they work up much faster than a typical shawl however is styled very much like a traditional shawl.

        The In’s & Out’s of Yarn Support

          When I first started designing knitwear, I started by purchasing my own yarn. As I started to get more established as a designer and more confident in my abilities, I started to be able to get yarn support from various sources.

          Yarn support is when a company or indie dyer provides the yarn for your designs. Yes, it’s as amazing as it sounds.
