Fair Isle Cowl, revisited...

Since I got to teach a class last night on how to do two-handed knitting to make a Fair Isle Cowl, I started another one to demonstrate the technique.  I wanted to pull yarn from my stash, and chose this cream color for the MC (main color) and a pale variegated yarn for the CC (contrast color).  Note to self: Choose yarn colors with more contrast on the next one.  

The students had some homework before class: knitting the ribbing. So, in one session we knit what you see here.They moved right along, and they got the hang of it very quickly.  It was a delightful evening!


  1. I think the soft colors look really nice together.

  2. That is so pretty, the soft colors, the beautiful texture of the wool. Can't wait to see it finished.


  3. I like the yarn that you selected for this project.

  4. OH I LOVE the look of those two calming yarns together . I Love it
