Flock of Four
Your own personal flock of sheep, in a quartet of 80-yard lamb-sized skeins. Solitude Wool gives us a set that lets you explore the nature of beautiful yarns made from 4 single-breed fleeces. Exclusive to MDK. A knit-and-purl cowl made with these yarns is an exploration of distinctive yarns.
Includes a digital download of MDK Field Guide No. 5: Sequences to make your own Corrugated wrap cowl.
For cowl: Cast on 40 stitches, otherwise following the corrugated Wrap pattern. When a mini-skein runs out, start the next ONE. Knit all 4 skeins, then bind off and seam the ends to make a loop. Block it and enjoy it!
