A cowl that looks like a scarf that looks like a shawl, is an easy-peasy knit and has an unusual construction, accentuated by stripes in my most beloved colors – that sounds like a new favorite project of mine, and that’s exactly what “Berry Skies” is! I have been playing around with different ways of making cowls, and this one struck me as particularly suited for a “Trio Aquarell” by Dibadu: Three colors with just enough contrast to emphasize the stripes and zig-zags that are in perfect harmony nevertheless – just like clouds in the sky over Damsdorf, my home, at sunset.
The cowl is entirely knit back and forth in garter stitch with only a few purl stitches and minimal ends to weave in when you are done. Depending on which side you decide to wear up, the light or dark colors will show more. Choose your favorite way to wear it, and the geometric zig-zag elements will be more prominent or less, making it one of the most versatile knitted pieces of your wardrobe!
