We try to make sure to take time to knit every day- even if it's just a few rows to relax and rest. To that end, we're recommending a beautiful and relaxing garter stitch cowl that will help you create a Zen mindset!
Designed by Antonia Shankland, the Far Garter Cowl is an easy-to-knit project that calls for a luxuriously soft Woolfolk Far. It's as pleasurable to knit as it is to wear, and it's a meditatively gentle way to help you unwind.
How would we describe Woolfolk Far? For starters, it's got all the sumptuous, cloud-like softness of cashmere- but it's not cashmere! Instead, Far is made using a patented Ultimate Merino. It's plied in a chainette construction, so the yarn's core stays airy and light, helping your garments and accessories retain warmth without feeling bulky or cumbersome.
Far's exquisite stitch definition looks so lovely in a simple presentation. And since all of the colors in Far's sophisticated palette work so beautifully together, Antonia created the Far Garter Cowl in a sublime, color-blocked format so you'll have lots of options.
Here are some of our favorite color combos:
27 + 00, 02 + 11,18 + 20
To knit the Far Garter Cowl, you'll need:
3 skeins of Woolfolk Far - 2 skeins in a main color + 1 for contrast (Antonia used colors 33 + 28)
The pattern is free with your yarn purchase. If you're shopping online, we'll gladly email you the pattern when we post your order.
