Beauchamp Cowl

The Beauchamp Cowl is up for sale! And of course, I’ll be donating 50% of the purchase price of this pattern (and all my patterns) to MSF and the Canadian Red Cross for Haiti relief, through the end of January.

Beauchamp Cowl

This fast and fun cowl is snuggly, warm, and a great intro to stranded colourwork knitting to boot! Worked in either fingering weight or DK weight yarn, this is a great project to use up all those little bits of sock yarn or a special fibre.

    I LOVE all those colours in the fingering weight version. It’s really stunning! You’ve done it again!

    Hi Laura! I LOVE this pattern! Just as much as I love many of your other patterns, that is ;)

    I’m thinking about buying a copy, but first I’d like to ask you a question: is it easy enough for somebody who has never done a project with so many colors at the same time? the max number of colors I’ve used on a single project at the same time is 2, and I’m afraid to get a bit crazy with so many strands of yarn running through my fingers!

    Thanks for your advice ;)
