Oddments Cowl

0 ratings

Remnants, fragments, oddments. Having leftovers at all, of anything, is a beautiful thing. A sign of abundance. A kind of decadence. And when you can use up those leftovers in the creation of something new, it’s a wonderful feeling.

The Oddments Cowl is a lovely, cosy accessory to enjoy as the weather starts to turn. When you need something soft to snuggle into, it’s a great piece to layer under a coat or a jacket. This is one of those projects that looks impressive and complex, but is deceptively simple to knit. It’s also a very potato-chippy pattern, with wide, colourful stripes of easy-to-memorise lace.

I’ve designed this cowl to use up leftovers, but I can see it being stunning in a candy stripe of two or three colourways, a gradient, or even a single lovely shade, to show off the lace. Use as many colours and repeats as you like to make it your own.
