Triangulate cowl is hot new knitting pattern

Bristol Ivy posted the news of her new cowl pattern on Twitter this morning. And it's a winner! The knitting designer has cleverly knit away the dangling ends of the shawl in organic worsted yarn, 'Pioneer,' produced by A Verb for Keeping Warm, a fiber arts store and natural dye studio, in Oakland, California. It's part of the California Wool Project, a collaboration with Sally Fox, who owns a merino sheep farm in Yolo County. The "Triangulate Cowl" knitting pattern is knit on US 8 needles and requires 320 yards or 2 skeins.

Longer and more luxurious than another recent triangular cowl design, which comes to mind, this cowl pattern sells for $5.00 on Ravelry. Purchase it now and get started on your Christmas knitting gift list. Knitnscribble is planning several already.

Stephen West of Westknits used Pioneer for his new 'Iberian Discovery', a really versatile unisex shawl, wrap, scarf pattern posted in June of this year.

"There are three fun welts to work along with garter stitch short rows, knit purl texture and a picot bind off. The final shape is luxuriously long, ideal for dramatically tossing one end over the shoulder or wrapping round and round scarf-style." 

Huelo Dunn at Verb writes, "We'll have more Pioneer in the fall!"

  1. Great post!! In fact, A Verb For Keeping Warm is a fiber arts store and natural dye studio, based in Oakland, California. We partnered with Sally Fox, of Vreseis Farm in Yolo County, California, to make Pioneer from her organic merino wool. So it's truly a collaboration between urban and rural. You can read all about Pioneer, and our California Wool Project, on our blog: http://www.averbforkeepingwarm.com/blogs/news/tagged/california-wool-project We'll have more Pioneer in the fall! -Huelo, A Verb For Keeping Warm.
