Three Fates Design Challenge Part IV: Testing, Testing!

At long last, the Nusa cowl is ready for testing! As you may have noticed, in the end I decided that the reversible feature of the cowl was too cool (and too functional) not to do - it creates a fabric that is substantial but not bulky, and makes both sides tidy and beautiful. Plus, there's two different stripe combinations, so you can choose your own adventure when getting dressed in the morning! There's a bit of sewing involved, but it's all outlined in the pattern.

Interested in test knitting? I'd love to have ya! I used one skein each of Three Fates Yarns aquae fingering in colorways Mt St Helens and Netarts, or you can substitute another fingering weight - about 420 yards of the Main Color and 220 yards of the Contrast Color.

Feel free to drop me a line at cory at indieknits dot com if you're interested in test knitting.

Ariel's pattern is also ready for testing, and you can take a look at her post over here.

Happy Friday, friends!

Beautiful! I also like the way the cowl drapes when wrapped around you. It doesn't feel to big or small.

I absolutely love this. The scalloped edges is a great feature and the drape is so different from a lot of other cowls I've seen.

I just discovered your blog, and I absolutely love this cowl design. The stripes, the scallop, the colors! I will be following so I can nab the pattern once you publish. Looking forward to reading more of your blog and seeing your designs.
