Our newest Quickie is a cute-n-loopy cowl by the delightful Katherine Vaughan! Knit up in our Lace, it’s designed to let lace patterning and variegation exist in harmony!
This light and lacy cowl is inspired by the granite coast of Maine, where the chilly evenings prompt the wise knitter to keep a stock of quick handknits around—even in August!
A large number of stitches are initially cast on, but 60% are bound off on the next row, resulting in a looped edge. The simple lace body allows the mottling pattern of the Malabrigo Lace (held doubled) to shine. Loops are also created at the bind off by adding back the stitches that had been removed at the beginning.
What are Malabrigo Quickies?
Quickies are small, fast projects which require only one or two skeins of yarn. Approximately every two weeks we’ll be teaming up with a talented independent designer to present an exciting new accessory (or other “small object”) pattern, showcasing one of our many yarns and colorways.
