Patrolling graveyards at night in search of freshly risen vampires is a thankless job, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look fabulous!
I am excited to debut the first pattern in the Kniterary Crochet line: the Seven Rings Cowl. Whether you’re Buffy the Vampire Slayer battling the forces of evil or Dean Winchester climbing out of Hell, Dante was there first. Inspired by Dante’s Inferno, the Seven Rings Cowl is made with seven different yarns, which range from fingering to worsted. The varying fibers and weights provide a unique texture and drape. It’s an ideal project for stash busting luxury yarn left over from other projects or to try an array of fine yarns while only purchasing a single skein of each.
This cowl holds a special place in my heart. It was one of the first pieces Megan-Anne and I dreamed up for the Kniterary line. Plus, the sample was crocheted out of the seven yarns I purchased on my mini birthday yarn tour back in March. Now, it’s an awesome souvenir from that weekend. I can’t wait for autumn to arrive so I can start wearing it!
The Seven Rings Cowl was designed to function as a utilitarian yarn tasting. It gives you the opportunity to sample new-to-you yarns before committing to use them for larger projects AND you get to walk away with a comfy, chic cowl. These are the fabulous yarns I used:
- Plymouth Yarn’s Worsted Merino Superwash in the “Royal” colorway.
- The Yarns of Rhichard Devrieze’s Peppino in the “Into the Shadows” colorway.
- Stonehedge Fiber Mill’s Shepherd’s Wool Worsted in the “Raspberry” colorway.
- Mountain Color’s Mountain Goat in the “Ruby River” colorway.
- Spud & Chloe’s Sweater in the “Barn” colorway.
- Baah!’s La Jolla in the “Orange Amber” colorway.
- Madelinetosh’s Tosh Merino Light in the “Candlewick” colorway.
I’m sure you’ll see them used again in other Kniterary patterns. ;-)
Give Dante some slack. He’s been to hell and back!
