Introducing Bering Cowl... the cowl version of Bering Shawl
designed for my 2019 knitting cruise to Alaska!
Kits available here
The construction starts out quite portable which makes a ton of sense for travel knitting! It starts with 3 glaciers that are connected by Inner Passages, and finished with an “outside” border.
The beads are prestrung and worked with the easiest of techniques.
1. Five Glaciers
are worked. These start with The Tip
(a small mitered square). The Tip then has sts picked up around it, and The Break Up
is worked (with optional beads), and finally the Blow Hole Section
is worked. All of these sts are put on scrap yarn.
2. Then Inner Passages
are worked that join the Glaciers
3. Finally, an attached I-cord is worked around the top and bottom of the cowl.
