Kate Oates Shifty Cowl PDF
Kate Oates’ Shift Cowl is a one-size accessory that is addictive to knit and characterized by shifting stitches with shifting color. It is worked back and forth in two separate pieces with reversible fabric joined seamlessly. The easy stitch patterns are written line by line, and there are no stitches to pick up. This fabulous cowl is knit in Spincycle Yarns Dyed in the Wool, a hand-dyed before it’s spun, making the colors meet and part ways in stunning, unique combinations; the overall effect is of a balanced, seamless whole. The color transitions are slow and dramatic, and every skein is unique.
