As dark evenings draw in, stoke the fires of creativity by turning your hand to our beautiful Mistake Rib Cowl In Cashmere Tend, a cold-weather friend for many seasons to come!
Our first ever 100% cashmere yarn comes in 18 stunning heather-y shades. We used Green Sea with its gem-like punch, but we’d also love Coquelicot Orange or a lovely neutral, like Rolled Oat, Ice Gray, or Nocturne Blue… Tough to go wrong here!
Mistake rib stitch is really just a simple 2×2 rib that off-sets columns of knits and purls by one stitch, creating a brioche-illusion with none of the fuss. You’ll need just two skeins of Cashmere Tend, so whether you’re looking for a quick gift or a knitting treat, this Mistake Rib Cowl covers both!
