Moonwake Cowl by Andrea Mowry
"I love a moebius cowl as it is perfect for when you don’t want to have to weave in lots of ends from colorwork! Not to mention - it happens to be my favorite style of cowl to wear - double win!

Moonwake is a great small project packed with a variety of techniques (provisional cast on, knitting in the round, colorwork, grafting...) - it's a skill-building knit for adventurous beginners and fun for more advanced knitters alike. 

Andrea's pattern includes everything you need, including a detailed overview of the design construction, easy to follow charts for the colorwork, video tutorials for the provisional cast on and kitchener stitch with illustrations showing how to join your finished cowl.
New to colorwork? Moonwake's rhythmic and short repeats make this a great project to try colorwork, or hone your colorwork skills. Knit entirely on a 16" circular needle, there's no need to worry about needle transitions, purling with more than one color, or increasing/decreasing in colorwork. 

The yarn, you ask? The announcement for this Knitalong has been waiting for our restock of Julie's Melange N.1 as her new Yak blend is a great fit and we're excited to share that we currently have all colors in stock, and 2 new Melange colors for you!
If another of our DK or worsted weight yarns strikes your fancy, then go with it! Leizu DK is always a favorite, Shepherd's Wool Worsted is so soft and squishy and Brooklyn Tweed Arbor would also be a great fit (although our inventory is still pretty lean with a lot of colors on backorder). This cowl would also be lovely in the softer colors of Woolfolk Far  and our current stock is on sale.
Need help picking your colors or "see" your combo before you order? 
We're happy to help select your perfect color combination via email (we love sending photos) or you can schedule a Virtual Shopping Appointment via Zoom and we can pick out colors together!
