Knitcircus Magazine Winter 2011-12, Issue 16 is out, and it features a beautiful cowl called Sprite, designed by Lynn Hershberger. It’s knitted using one skein of Malabrigo Rios, colorway #412 Teal Feather.
In the words of the designer:
“The energy and fun of a zigzag pleases me. Over the ages, all cultures have enjoyed using this motif as a way to embellish, decorate, and entertain. There is an energy which comes from a diagonal line which draws me in, and I become more intrigued as I play with its possibilities.
I named this Sprite for the agile energy associated with the word. Webster says a sprite is an elf or fairy. I’d like to feel that chipper on a cool winter day, and I think this collar may just help that goal!”
