Episode 044 (Vogue Knitting Live NYC)
Recorded on Monday, January 22, 2018
Listen to Episode 043 to see if you won all the Kino Knits patterns for 2018. If I don’t hear from the winner by the next time I record, I’ll redraw, so please leave your iTunes review for this podcast to be eligible! If you have already left a review, you’re already in it.
I’ve released a new pattern – the Hon Cowl! It was inspired by the Bawlmer (Baltimore) Hons, local ladies with big personalities and big beehive-hairdos who call everyone “Hon.” With this cheery pink cowl, I used big welted sections to echo the original kind of beehive, with a little easy lace thrown in for interest. The cowl gradually increases in circumference as you go, meaning it cascades gorgeously into a fashion layer with no styling effort.
