From the issue:
“When offered the opportunity to put together a collection for knitscene, Jesie says she knew immediately it would involve colorwork. “Nordic stars, Scandinavian two-color Norwegian sweaters, snowflakes, graphic motifs, navy and white and gray—I knew right away.” After narrowing her collection down to just a few pieces, Jesie ultimately found herself aiming for a 1970s après-ski look with a Gilmore Girls/Olympic Village feel that taps into trends that are everywhere now.”
The Snowflake Cowl begins with a provisional cast on, and then in worked in the round in a tube for the length of the scarf. The provisional cast on is then removed and the beginning an end are grafted together for a seamless finish. The combination of fingering weight yarn and classic lice stitch and snowflake design in a modern circular cowl makes for a perfectly up-to-date accessory with a timeless look!
