The Trifle Cowl ~ The Knit Sister was designed in collaboration with Bad Sheep Yarn for their 2023 Advent Box but now the pattern is available for everyone!
The intension was to design a pattern that is accessible to new knitters while being interesting for seasoned knitters. The result is the perfect beginner-friendly cowl that is entertaining to knit. The creative construction allows us to work flat and then seam together a faux mobius cowl! That's right! Its worked completely flat! The simple relaxing stitch work allows for creative use of color and produces a beautifully squishy finished product.
The Trifle Cowl ~ The Knit Sister can be knit with fingering weight yarn held double, DK weight yarn, or a combination of both! This cowl is great for stash busting and/or playing with minis. Or you can lean into Marcie's color genius and make a kit.
