Ring the Gack

Easy to knit and easy to wear, this cowelette is a truly unisex accessory that will keep anyone warm. It is part of a collection that I created called One Stitch, Two Stitch: a Mini Stitch Dictionary for Mini Stitches. The stitch dictionary contains 14 different stitch patterns that have 2 stitch repeats that can be used interchangeably in four accessory patterns. If you enjoy knitting this piece, you might want to check out the others!

Worked in the wonderful worsted weight 100% SuperWash Merino Malabrigo Rios, the color possibilities for this comfy neck-warmer are endless. I chose the color Ivy for my sample.

In keeping with the Dr. Seuss theme of the collection I have chosen a nonsensical name pulled directly from One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish and it makes me smile every time I read it! “Funny things are everywhere!”

You can see a video tour of the patterns included in the e-book on my YouTube channel "Watch Barbara Knit".
