As String continues to grow our presence on Ravelry and get introduced to other members of this worldwide family, we meet many wonderful designers. We recently discovered Joji Locatelli.

We encourage you to try new stitch patterns to grow your repertoire and cowls continue to be a great outlet for this exercise. Cowls can be worn in the coldest of winter, the spring, and fall and continue to make appearances throughout the summer. No matter the season, cowls have become the ideal finishing touch – a hit of color, texture, and pattern that rounds out any outfit.

3-Color Cashmere Cowl

The 3-Color Cowl designed by Joji is a lovely pattern to enjoy on many levels. Her perfect combination of stripes, texture and lace makes for a fun, quick knitting project. It’s so nice to have patterns and color jump in your hands as we move through this cold season. We chose Zealana Air for its incredibly soft touch and depth of color resulting in a larger size cowl than specified in the pattern. Choose the size that suits you best.

Zealana Air is the result of tireless research to develop a luxurious fiber, combining the signature Zealana brushtail possum with cashmere and mulberry silk; truly a breakthrough blended yarn. We know you will enjoy this gem of a project! Spoil yourself and add a little bit of luxury to your day.

Knitting tip:

To prevent the color “jog” that occurs when you change colors from being very noticeable, slip the first stitch of the second round you knit with each color as if to purl. This technique will even out the knitting, and the color change will be less noticeable at the beginning of the round.
