Sometimes you just need what I call a sorbet knitting project. You know, a little something light to cleanse the palate between bigger courses.
I just got three big projects off my plate. This shawlette will be debuting soon as a new Loops exclusive kit:
And this top called “Nicole” was begun on our beach vacay, in Sublime Tussah Silk (pattern booklet and yarn both available here).
So yes, I needed a quick-and-easy project before I dive into my next big knitting adventure. I was working at the Utica store and my eye kept coming back to our big basket of Louisa Harding Sari Ribbon. I matched up a beautiful blue-and-silver with a ball of ubersoft Lang Estrella.
And wa to the la, a new cowl was born. Just look what it does for a plain grey T. Here’s the “before”:
And here are the “afters”:
And now…here is the free pattern!
Sorbet Ribbon Cowl
1 skein Louisa Harding Sari Ribbon
1 ball Lang Estrella
Size 13 needles
Cast on 14 sts with Estrella.
Knit 4 rows in Estrella.
Switch to Sari and *K1, wrap yarn 2 times around needle* across row, ending K1.
Next row, knit across in Sari, dropping the extra wraps that aren’t connected to a knit stitch.
Repeat this 6-row pattern 24 times. Knit 4 rows in Estrella and cast off. Cut 50 pieces of Sari, each about 12″ long, and use a crochet hook to create fringe along one side of the cowl. Use the darning needle to seam the ends of the scarf together, forming a loop. That’s it!
This Sorbet comes in many flavors. Here are some other good color combos.
