This Magic Cowl is a cinch to knit and looks so one-of-a-kind, people will stop you on the street! As you knit this, the yarn changes from ribbon to sparkly mohair to boucle to big nubs and in some skeins, beads! The hand dyed colors blend together beautifully and change along with the texture. We used 1 skein of Be Sweet's Magic Ball and a pair of 24" circular US 10.5 and 11 needles. This is a free pattern with the purchase of the yarn.
The yarn comes from Be Sweet, a wonderful company that works with job creation programs to give artisans the confidence and the means to support themselves and their families in otherwise economically depressed regions.
Be Sweet’s mission; to bring socially and environmentally friendly products to fashionable consumers that evoke an individual style and help support community development around the world.
We can back that!
The cowl looks gorgeous worn long like a necklace or wrapped around your neck twice to keep you warm and stylish.
Each ball is unique. Lovely jewel toned colors.
