Announcing my first pattern of 2018: Waverleigh, now available in my Ravelry pattern store. To celebrate its release, I'm having a BIG January sale! Save 20% on individual Blue Peninsula patterns with the coupon code TREATYOURSELF through Sunday, January 14. Use the code as many times as you like (ebooks and sets not included).
Crisp twisted ribbing flows effortlessly into an undulating lace-and-cables stitch pattern in this warm and feminine cowl. Knit in DK weight yarn, Waverleigh is long enough to wear as a single loop or doubled around your neck. It's worked seamlessly in the round — no grafting or seaming required.
Waverleigh requires 365 yds/333 m DK weight yarn. For the sample, I used a Rhinebeck find: Hudson Valley Fibers Moodna DK. This undyed yarn is American-made, a mix of 40% New York State Romney wool and 60% other U.S. fine wool. Moodna was a pleasure to work with; it has a satisfying, wooly halo yet also has beautifully crisp stitch definition.
Waverleigh would be a lovely project to cast on for the Treat Yourself KAL starting this Sunday, January 14. Any of my designs can be knit for this KAL, as long as you're making it for yourself. We have some delectable prizes, too. Get all the details and join the KAL in the Ravelry Blue Peninsula group.
I hope your New Year is off to a happy and peaceful start. Hope to see you in the KAL!
