What is this, two new patterns in one week? Trust me, that’s not actually the case. I’ve had these patterns finished for a LONG time, but it’s taken me until now to, you know, summon up the energy and willpower to actually publish them. (For those of you just tuning in, I’m also talking about my Eclectic Shawl, which is only available for free on ravelry until this Wed., 2/27, so snap it up while you can!)
This new pattern also goes around your neck, although in a slightly different way. I have, just for you, the Telescopic Cowl. I used the same cable and textured mesh stitch patterns as my Chrolla hat, but have combined them to make a slightly different shape.
Telescopic is knit in the round with three sizes available: a cowl, a small eternity scarf, and a large eternity scarf (the sample pictured is the large). All three loops are 6” tall after blocking, although you could certainly continue for longer if you have the yarn! The pattern has both written and charted options for the stitch pattern, making it incredibly versatile.
As part of the Knit Picks Independent Designer Program, the sample is knitted using 1 (2, 3) 50g skeins of Knit Picks Galileo (50% Merino Wool, 50% Bamboo), a sport weight yarn with a devastatingly wonderful sheen. Seriously, when you see this yarn you’ll think they added shiny acrylic. It’s amazing!
As a thank-you to all of my amazing blog readers, for just the next week (until Monday, March 4), you can get Telescopic for FREE on ravelry. No code required (honestly, you don’t have to read the blog. You just have to come across the pattern!). After that, it will go up to $1.99 and be posted on the Knit Picks site, under Independent Designs. While you’re on ravelry, I highly suggest that you snoop around the samples that my testers made. They are seriously wonderful and worth taking a look!
