Meet Pop Twizzle, an oversized seamless cowl, with a chevron lace edge detail. This design is an exciting collaboration with Cate from Infinite Twist and was inspired by her beautiful hand dyed yarn. I am incredibly honored to be a part of her latest Winter collection, Turkish Delight. Cate approached me earlier this year with an idea for a kit collaboration, pairing one of her new yarns, Umbra, with a brioche cowl pattern. Voila, the idea for Pop Twizzle was born! I wanted to combine the same stitch pattern that I used to design the Pop Fizzle hat, but use it to create a textural, squishy, gigantic cowl, with a scalloped edge detail, created by the brioche chevron lace.
Let me just talk about her Umbra yarn for a minute. Wow, it is incredible. A blend of Camel hair and Nylon, with an almost woven ply, this yarn is probably one of the softest I have ever encountered. I couldn’t possibly have used any other yarn, it creates the most beautiful brioche fabric, with a density and drape that are quite magical. Cate dyes this yarn herself, and has put together four delicious color combinations, all of which are compliments of each other. I knit my sample using Scarlet (the bright red main color) and Badlands (the shadow-like maroon contrast color), and it just shouts HOLIDAYS to me! I feel like I’m all dressed up, ready to go to a holiday party!
