It's always the simplest knit that becomes your wardrobe staple, isn't it? When you combine a stunning yarn with an attractive stitch pattern, it's really all you want to wear!
With that in mind, we knit our new Seeded Cowls with a strand of Shibui Birch held with a strand of Shibui Maai. Using a seed stitch variation, we cast on and thoroughly enjoyed knitting every super soft stitch!
Shibui is known for fine fibers in sophisticated, coordinating colors. Birch is a single ply of fine merino that is wildly soft to the touch. Maai is a baby alpaca and merino blended in a lofty chainette construction. When stranded together, they create a luxurious fabric that you can treat yourself to everyday!
2 skeins each of Birch and Maai make our double loop version. It can be worn as single loop, scarf-style tucked into to your coat or doubled up and draped for extra warmth and style. Shown here in the Graphite colorway.
One skein each of Birch and Maai knits into a cozy single cowl in a yarn combination that feels fantastic close to the skin. We knit ours in the velvet colorway.
Knit on a US10 needle, this cowl knits up quickly so you can start wearing your new favorite right away, and then cast on another to gift to your BFF!
We knit one in a neutral and one in a color- it was so hard to choose! Shibui does an amazing job with color. Each shade is carefully created and wearable, making any Shibui piece a high covetable item!
The colorways are subtle versions of each hue; the color is saturated but not too bright. The neutrals are varied with a light, medium and dark to suit everyone's taste.
