Sally has put together cowl kit using a pattern from Dominique Trad - one of our favourite designers. She has chosen the Diamondback Cowl.  The Diamondback cowl is a fun and easy way to indulge in some colourwork in the round while you knit up a cosy accessory. It is a quick knit that requires no float management so it is a great project for colourwork beginners to gain confidence, and for experienced strand-knitters to relax with.

The kit includes the pattern and yarn fro the small size. If you want the larger size then you will need to purchase an extra ball of each colour. 

If you would like your skeins wound/balled then you will need to also purchase the ball winding service.

The pattern is adjustable in circumference, has full written instructions for all the colourwork, as well as inverse versions of the chart to better reflect the yarn combo you choose.

Yarn Requirements (either size) 
M (main colour):  1 skein  100g
C (contrast colour):  1 skein  100g

Yarn substitution: Worsted or DK weight yarns at approx. 180m/197yd per 100g/3.53oz are best for similar results.

4mm (US 6) needles and 5mm (US 8) needles. You can use a single 60cm (24”) circular needle (or longer as required), or two circular needles (if you like to use the Magic Loop method). 1 stitch marker for marking the beginning of rounds and additional markers if you would like to separate your repeats. Tapestry needle.
