We will continue to make our customers' stashes accessible to them to the end of 30 June, 2019, in order to provide them with time to save their purchased patterns to their personal hard drives.

Thank you all so very much for your enthusiastic support over the years.  It has meant an enormous amount to us.

Sound Bars Cowl

This colorwork pattern is my interpretation of the animated panel of sound bars that I used to stare at while listening to CDs on the then-advanced stereo system my parents had when I was growing up. As stranded colorwork patterns go, this one is fairly easy and would be a good project if you’re just getting started with stranded work.

To knit this pattern, you’ll need to know how to do the following:
- knit and purl in the round
- work with more than one color at a time
- read and work from a colorwork chart

As written, the pattern is design to produce a relatively close-fitting cowl for warmth, but instructions are included for making it bigger.

Yarn requirements: approximately 125 yds./114 m of the main color and 75 yds./69m of the contrast color

This pattern has been professionally tech edited.
