Indie Design GAL: Scarves & Cowls

This is part of my on-going Indie Designer Gift-A-Long 2016 series, where from November 23rd – December 31st I highlight some patterns from my fellow designers also participating in the event! Each post will highlight at minimum 5 different designers and their patterns.

Don’t forget to join in the fun, we’re all over here chatting up a storm (when our fingers aren’t flying that is).

strangerthingsStranger Things Cowl by Mary Annarella

From the pattern description
Knit entirely in the round, the outer colorwork pattern is worked first, and features an alphabet lined up with a string of Christmas lights. The chart for the inner portion of the cowl inverts the MC and CC for what becomes the Upside Down version of the same alphabet design.

Uses 570 yds of fingering weight yarn

alamedaAlameda by Clare Lakewood

From the pattern description
This bold cowl features a geometric pattern inspired by Moorish tilework on oneside, and a sweet, traditional gingham on the other. Totally reversible, there’s no wrong side here. This cowl is knit in one piece, folded in half, and the provisional cast on is kitchener-stitched to the live edge, making for a double-thick, cozy cowl.

Uses 550 – 570 yds of fingering weight yarn

From the pattern description

In Austin, TX there is a place called Secret Beach. It’s a little known yet popular place on the Eastside where hipsters and outdoor enthusiasts gather alike. Secret Beach is where the beautiful Colorado River meets the land, and this scarf is where beautiful colors meet a textured design. Perfect for the hipster or outdoor enthusiast in you!
