We have a fluffy new project for all the mohair mavens out there: our Posy Marled Cowl!
This featherweight, color-blocked confection of a cowl is knit with two strands of our mohair silk Loop Posy held together to envelop your neck in ultra-lightweight warmth!
Posy is our dreamy, laceweight blend of fluffy mohair and lustrous silk that we dye in-house in a rainbow of tonal hues. Its fiber composition takes dye in an almost magical fashion and knits up into fabrics with a pillowy, diffused halo and mesmerizingly radiant glints of glossy silk.
The Posy Marled Cowl is a fun way to explore the magic of color marling - a colorfully dimensional effect created when two different yarn colors are held together.
The center section of this cowl holds together a strand of the main color + a strand of contrast color, while the edges hold together two strands of the main color. To prevent excess rolling at the edges, you begin and end with a smaller needle and a purl round to create a thin, rolled edge that holds its shape.
We made ours in the caramel colorway. Above are swatches from L to R for copper, charcoal, and cypress.
