Classic Elite Yarns



Issue 486 • Coors Cowl

Coors Cowl 2017

The Coors Cowl by Annissa George (owner of Stitch House Dorchester, an LYS in Boston), has been a favorite CEY project since we first published it in our Web-Letter in early 2013 (Issue #273). One hank each of five colors makes this generously sized squishy cowl worked in simple seed stitch.

The original version was worked in undyed Chalet. We now have colorful Chateau and tweedy Palace to mix and match with Chalet for endless color combinations. Our new version is knit in: Palace 5509 Teal, Palace 5504 Lichen, Chalet 7438 Chestnut, Palace 5567 Mermaid and Palace 5578 Sienna. Pictured below are a few more possible combinations.
