The Shift Cowl

The Shift Cowl is a perfect all-the-time accessory and the answer for all of you who love to knit shawls but have a hard time styling them. A fun, engaging knit with shifting colors, Shift looks like an asymmetrical triangle shawl and it only takes a fiddle-free second to throw it on as a finishing touch for almost any outfit!


Knit in Spincycle Dyed in the Wool, you'll need one skein each of three different colors. Dyed in the Wool is a sport-weight, machine-washable Blue-Faced Leicester wool that is hand-dyed before it's spun. The colors meet and part ways in stunning, unique combinations and the overall effect is a balanced, seamless whole. When planning larger projects requiring more than one skein, allow for nuance. Made in the USA... from sheep to skein!


If you like our sample, you'll like the following color combination: Tell-Tale Heart, Swerve & Cataclysm. Click here to shop all eighteen in-stock colors! Again, you'll need three skeins (one each of three different colors); paper copies of the pattern are available for purchase in-store, or you can purchase an electronic version here from Ravelry!
