Issue 218 Kumara Bifurcate Cowl
This two color cowl is a show-stopper, and its construction is incredibly clever. How’s this for a brain-teaser...the entire cowl is knit back and forth, NOT in the round. Curious? This ingenious design comes from Rachel Henry, the designer who brought us one of our most popular Web-Letters to date, the Cotton Bam Boo Kudzu Shawlette.
There is no cozier yarn than Kumara, with its soft, lofty blend of extrafine Merino and baby camel hair. The camel hair is undyed, resulting in a muted effect that performs in perfect harmony with the sophisticated palette of 23 colors. Baby camel, a fiber with a softness rivaling cashmere, is expensive on its own, but you'll find it in this decadent blend at an affordable price. This yarn is pure luxury!
