Flowing River Cowl
Marianated Yarns Practicality has the ideal construction for Fission Knitting & yardage generous enough to make both a cowl & hat from 2 skeins . Marianated Yarns has put together some great colour combinations for these projects.
This quick to knit cowl is a great accessory to add to your winter collection. Although it is small, it provides a double layer of worsted weight warmth snugly around you neck and tucks into the top of your coat without any excess fabric. I also wear mine indoors as well to add a touch of colour to my outfits – the fun part is that you can wear it with the design showing in 4 different ways depending on how you fold it.
This cowl is knit holding 2 strands of fingering weight yarn together. The motif is created with slipped stitches.
This cowl is a part of a Flowing Marls e-book that teaches the Fission Knitting technique. This is the easiest knit in the set and you will learn 2 new cable stitches. The second cowl, Tranquil Waters Cowl teaches 2 more cables stitches. For the third cowl, Confluence Cowl, you will layer the motifs from the first two cowls on top of teach other to create a reversible cabled design. There is a lot of cabling in these patterns; some experience with cables is helpful but not required. Fission Knitting Tutorials of the cable stitches are provided.
The Family Connections Series & Secret Garden Scarf are designs that use this technique.
