Designer Feature: Beartooth Pass by Bonnie Dean

One of the most thrilling aspects of putting a new yarn out into the world is seeing what lovely designs others come up with! We’re so delighted to see new patterns pop up in our first Kelbourne Woolens yarn, Andorra, and this cowl by designer, editor, and hand dyed yarn purveyor Bonnie Dean is no exception!

Bear Tooth Pass is designed using two highly contrasting colors of Andorra. Completely reversible, it features tuck stitches and an Italian tubular cast on and bind off.

The cowl is the first of four featured in Bonnie’s Tuck Stitch Collection. The tuck stitch is used often in machine knitting, but isn’t as prevalent in hand knitting, so I am excited to see Bonnie use it and cannot wait to see what the next few designs in the collection entail.
