A great example of this is the Inspira Cowl by Marcy Clark (aka celerystalk on Ravelry). Knit in the round, the Inspira Cowl is a great introduction to Fair Isle, using a corrugated rib pattern with 2 different colors of yarn.
Our friend Jane had the marvelous idea to use 2 different colors of Liberty Wool to make her cowl. Look how great it came out:
Inspired by Jane’s cowl I immediately logged into Ravelry to see if anyone else had this great idea. I was pleased to see that several people had! I really love the way that each one is so different because of the long color repeats of Liberty Wool. With over 20 colors available the possibilities are endless. Check with your LYS to see if they have a Liberty Wool subscription; if so they will be receiving two additional colors every month. Here are just a few of the many colors available:
You can only imagine my surprise when yesterday morning I logged onto Facebook and saw that Colorful Stitches announced that they were hosting a knit-a-long for the Inspira Cowl using Liberty Wool! You can join their knit-a-long here. Betsy Perry, President of Classic Elite Yarns will help judge the winner for the knit-a-long.
Have you made an Inspira Cowl using Liberty Wool? We would love to see it. Post your pictures to our Facebook page or send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
