The Shift Cowl, designed by Andrea Mowry is a wonderfully-versatile cowl that looks like an asymmetrical triangular shawl when worn. The slip stitch pattern is very satisfying to knit and, when combined with colour-changing yarn, gives fantastic colour transitions even though you are only knitting with one colour per row. The cowl is superbly finished with an I-cord edging.
This version is knitted in Rico Creative Melange DK a lightweight double-knit yarn that is 53% wool and 47% acrylic. Please note that this is not the yarn used in the original pattern. The kit has proved very popular in the shop and I’m now able to offer it online, thanks to the generous permission of the team at Drea Renee Knits – thank you.
Available in three colourways, the kit includes 3 x 50g Rico Creative Melange DK and a printed copy of the pattern, purchased for you through the Ravelry In-store programme. You will also need a 3.75mm x 60cm circular needle, scissors, a tapestry needle and a row counter (recommended).
