Here is my new pattern, the Perpendicular Cowl

This handsome cowl or scarf uses a “magical” stitch to create vertical stripes on one side, horizontal stripes on the other. Amaze your friends!
It’s perfect for team or school colors, and makes a great gift.
You can graft the ends together for a cowl, or knit it as a scarf.

Here are some quotes from my wonderful test knitters.
“Loved the pattern. Will definitely make more! Everyone who has seen it thinks it is fabulous.”
“it was a pleasure to knit and I’ve had so many compliments about it!”
“Love the pattern, having lots of fun knitting it! Amazing how it works!”

Off the Needles
I finished the hat I showed you last time. It uses 2 balls of Noro Silk Garden Sock, striping them together with a simple slip stitch.

Now it's off to be published in a magazine in 2016.

Color Selection
The cowl above used a pretty safe color combo - red and gray.
How do you choose colors? Do you have a few tried and true colors that you gravitate to? Do you admire unusual combinations and wonder why they go so well together?
Next time I'm going to discuss the art and science of color combinations and help you become just a little bolder in your choices.
