7901 Ikat Blocks Cowl

"Our Ikat-dyed yarn works up beautifully in a deceptively simple cowl," reports Bryant. "Yes, you have it right— the blocks of color come from the dyeing itself, and although the knitter has to manipulate the colors a bit, doing so is not difficult. Once you have established the blocks, the knitting is fun and addictive. Imagine the possibilities! Shown in Ikat Dune Madison." Always a pioneer, Bryant has developed this exciting new way to use her Ikat dyes-- where everything depends on the length of the colour repeat. Once you've established that with your own gauge, the knitting is easy, but the effect monumental. And of course the piece is completely reversible. Note that your gauge may vary slightly, and that this effect depends on your using the Ikat dyed versions of these yarns. This approach is explored in detail in Bryant's latest superb book, Artful Color, Mindful Knits.
