THE POTTERN COWL YARN KITS USING OUR BEAUTIFUL HAND-DYED BARN DK, 100% BRITISH WOOL ARE NOW AVAILABLE TO ORDER. Please note, this kit does not include the Potter pattern. The pattern is only available by purchasing my new book, Echoes, which you can do by clicking on the link above. Your kit will be sent at the same time as your book.
The Potter cowl, inspired by the life and work of author Beatrix Potter, is a cosy textured cowl perfect for keeping you snug on a chilly day, with the double layer providing added warmth. The simple twist stitch - also used in the Beatrix vest - creates an intriguing surface pattern. The cowl is knit in the round and commences with a provisional cast-on to enable the work to be joined into a tube. As the main pattern is worked, needle sizes are changed to create shape without having to add or remove stitches.
Potter is knitted using Susan Crawford Barn a DK weight, worsted spun yarn that is delightfully smooth and soft, created from a blend of Jacobs and Shetland fibres spun exclusively for us in a nearby Yorkshire mill.
Beatrix is shown here in three colour ways.
Colourway One uses shade:
Puddle a warm blueish grey
Colourway Two uses shade Plum Jam a deep cerise pink
Colourway Three uses the beautiful undyed natural grey shade Dry Stone Wall
Choose from one of the three colourways shown or alternatively choose the 'custom' option to select a shade of your choice from the beautiful range of colours in Barn.
The kit comes in one size and includes 2 X 100g skeins of hand-dyed Barn in the colour of your choice.
