Part of the joy of spinning fibre is deciding what to create with the finished yarn, but what happens when you have too many ideas to choose from? Sometimes you want a cowl, other times a shawl. Should it be snug? Or draped? Too many choices, far too little knitting time.
So at the risk of sounding slightly like a super-hero movie… Is it a cowl? Is it a scarf? No, it’s Ensphere - a hybrid cowl-scarf-shawl accessory. Versatility is the main point - why have one option when you can have many? Twist it, drape it, or wrap it, you decide how you want to wear it. Whether it is coiled snugly around your neck, draped loosely as a shawl, or worn as a hood or a shrug, Ensphere is one truly adaptable accessory.
Crisp clean lines and i-cord are paired with different fabric finishes, with the goal of showing off the beauty and texture of handspun yarns. The pattern is modular, so different fibres, yarns, or colours can be used for each section to create a truly unique and individual piece.
