|mallory cowl pattern by me, yarn: knit picks swish worsted in colorway allspice|
see that lovely cowl in these pics knit up in that yummy "perfect for fall" color? well that's the mallory cowl. i heart the mallory cowl. it's seriously the bounciest & squishiest cowl i have ever made. since last year i've made a few of these to go along with mackenzie's child version and this one has to be my favorite one of all of them. wanna know why? well i adore the yarn it was made with.
the yarn used to knit this cowl is knit picks "swish worsted" in colorway allspice. yep, it's as good as it's name. how could i not knit my bouncy cowl pattern up in a yarn called "swish"? it's like a match made in heaven!!!! best part of it all is you can now buy the mallory pattern and matching yarn on the knit picks website as part of their independent designer program!! woot woot! how cool is that! you could pick up your pattern and choose the color that suits you right in one shopping cart! now that's what i call efficiency :)
swish worsted comes in tons of gorgeous colors too and the price is oh, so affordable. heck make one for your kidlet and one for you so you can match! so fun! each skein of swish worsted is $4.49 - $4.69 a ball and at 110yds/50g a ball you only need (2) to make a child's mallory or (4) for the adult one! wowsa! swish worsted is 100% superwash merino wool too! which means it's soft (great for baby & kid's clothes) and is machine washable!
the mallory cowl pattern has been updated and rewritten to include both the childs and adult pattern in one handy pdf with more concise instructions including 2 new gauges. this pattern is great for beginners and/or anyone looking to try knitting in the round. it's a quick project that knits up easily. perfect for a "treat myself" or "christmas pressie" kind of project.
you can purchase the mallory pattern at the following online shops:
