Don't Panic Gift Series - DRK Everyday Cowl

The DRK Everyday Cowl is a design you can knit over and over for all your family and friends and one for yourself! It is a bandana style and is sized from toddler to adult. The cowl can be knit in many styles, from solid to striped. You also have the opportunity to do a 3, 6, or 12 color fade if you are up for a bit of an adventure in color!


What is a fade?  A fade is a gradient that goes from darkest to lightest color.  You will transition from one color to another by mixing the yarns as you knit in a specific manner. You will be holding 2 strands of fingering weight yarn throughout the pattern.  All the information for all 3 fades are included in the pattern. We will give you additional info to track your fade easily.


In the class we will support you in making any style you like.  If you choose to do a fade, Lamb Shoppe will provide kits for all 3 fade options.  During class we will touch on color selection so you can go on to create your own fade projects.  If you don’t do a fade you will be supported in learning the steps of the pattern. Skills learned will be I-Cord bind edging and bind-off as well.

Gerry has spent a lot of time reading and learning about fit, yarn qualities, and gauge. Her strength lies in selecting the right size in patterns and what yarn best fits what you are looking for in your garment. The Novice Sweater class has been well received by patrons of the Lamb Shoppe. She also likes to focus on techniques and skills such as 2 at a time mitt knitting with magic loop, another of her favorite classes.
