I'm so excited to release my Rainbow Scales Cowl! It features a really exciting technique, which is a variant on entrelac. In normal entrelac, you knit square or rectangular units, and pick up stitches along the edges when beginning each new tier. In my cowl, you don't have to pick up any stitches at all. So you get all the fun of entrelac, which looks amazing in color changing yarns such as Noro, Jojoland, or handspun, without the bother of picked-up stitches.
The pattern was originally written for handspun yarn, so it's very flexible and forgiving. You can use anywhere from sport weight to worsted weight yarn, and thick and thin yarns are totally fine. I've knit two so far, and my first one was in handspun merino/tencel singles - so soft! Divine! And the entrelac patterning really highlights the colors of the yarn.
