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 cowl merges the motifs from the Flowing River and the Tranquil Waters Cowls to create a reversible fabric with different cable designs on each side.
This cowl is knit with two fingering weight yarns held together to form a squishy worsted weight fabric. It will feel like you are knitting a short (30 in/ 75 cm) scarf that will be seamed together in an unusual way. This small accessory provides a double layer of warmth zipped into the top of your coat. Or wear it over the collar of your coat to display your beautiful knitting technique. I also wear mine indoors for to brighten up my outfits.
This cowl is a part of a Flowing Marls e-book that teaches the Fission Knitting technique. The Flowing River Cowl 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 this 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.
