In partnership with the glorious yarn-creators Knit Collage, our new Comet collection is an interplanetary journey through wondrous color, out-of-this-world texture, and cosmic beauty!

Kaleidoscope Cowl | Purl Soho

An inventive spin of wool, mohair, and Angelina sparkle, Knit Collage creates Comet in India in collaboration with a team of 13 craftswomen who expertly card, spin, and finish each skein.

Our Kaleidoscope Cowl is the perfect show-stopper for this extra-special yarn. Knit in simple seed stitch on US 19 needles, Comet does all the talking!

  • 2 skeins of Purl Soho + Knit Collage’s Comet. Each skein is approximately 34 yards/115 grams; approximately 62 yards required. We used the color Cosmic Rays (top), which is 77% wool, 10% mohair, 12% silk, and 1% Angelina sparkle. (Other colors have slightly different fiber combos!)
  • US 19 (15/16 mm), 24-inch circular needles
  • A jumbo stitch marker


4 stitches and 8 rounds = 4 inches in seed stitch


Finished Circumference: 29 inches

Finished Height: 10 inches


Cast on 29 stitches.

Place marker for working in the round, being careful not to twist the stitches.

Round 1: K1, *p1, k1, repeat from * to end of round.

Round 2: P1, *k1, p1, repeat from * to end of round.

Repeat Rounds 1 and 2 until piece measures 10 inches from cast-on edge.

Bind off loosely in pattern.

Weave in remaining ends.

Blocking is probably not necessary, but if you really want to, a very light steam will do!
