Zig Zag Cowl





Pattern: Mochi Plus Zig Zag Cowl by Sandi Rosner
Yarn: Handspun BFL samples from Janel Laidman's Spinning a Painted Skein class
Needle: US10.5 Addi Turbo Lace
Notes: I know all the colors are insane and clash but I still kind of love them. Also since these were class samples the diameter and twist of the yarn changes quite a lot. The pattern was a really simple, addictive knit and I think it mixes the colors well. I would highly recommend this for a last minute gift. I cast on at lunchtime on Saturday and finished Sunday evening.

I think all the colors are great! Just what one needs are here with the gray, cold and dreary days!

The colors are great together, I especially like the greens and purples and how the splash of red pulls it all together. . . a nice design for the combination and just think. . . the perfect cowl to wear when eating salsa/chips and drinking margheritas!
