Dissent cowl, yarn combinations
This is a first for me!
I have never shared another designers project but in this case I am glad to make an exception. Carissa Browning graciously allowed me to make the DK weight knit kits available for her fabulous Dissent cowl design. Celebrating the life and accomplishments of the late Supreme Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, reminding us to have our voices heard.
Yarnz2go's has great color combos for you to choose from. The pattern purchase contributes to the ACLU fund and Carissa raised over $30K for in just a matter of a few days. Click HERE for download. NOTE: You pay for the pattern separately!
This top-down, flared cowl was inspired by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s famous (and fabulous) collar, worn when she dissents from a decision by the Supreme Court.
The upper section is a simple polka dot mosaic pattern, followed by a band of larger mosaic blocks. The lower section is separated into polka dots in the back with the bejeweled bib in the front. Increases are worked into the bib portion, so the jewels get larger as you work downward, which gives the cowl its flared shape.
Mosaic knitting is a form of colorwork where only one color is used on any given row. The stitches you want to be that color are either knitted or purled, while the stitches you want to be other color are simply slipped from needle to needle without being worked, while the working yarn is held in the back.
