Revisiting: Equilibrium Cowl -- Now a kit!

This seems a very good time to revisit my Equilibrium Cowl design which was originally published in Knitscene Accessories, 2012. (My first magazine!)

This reversible cowl was designed to be a great learning project in stranded knitting. You can learn much more about the technique in my own Two-Handed Stranded Colorwork Tutorial. In fact, all of the photos in my tutorial are of me knitting the Equilibrium stitch patterns.

If you are a Knitting Daily email subscriber you might already know that Interweave is currently offering an Equilibrium Cowl Kit with 2 skeins of the very same yarn that I used for the original design sample... 
Cascade Yarns Eco Alpaca (100% undyed alpaca; 220 yd 201 m/100 g) 
• #1520 black (MC), 1 skein 
• #1510 natural (CC), 1 skein
Included in the kit is a digital copy of Knitscene Accessories, 2012.
In addition, you will need a 16" circular needle to get gauge (US Size 8, 5mm recommended), a stitch marker and tapestry needle.

Knitscene editor Hannah Baker wrote a lovely article describing the cowl,
Irresistible Reversible Knits: One Cowl, Two Ways. Please check it out if you have the time.
There are currently 88 Equilibrium Cowl Projects on Ravelry in every color of the rainbow!  
Thanks for reading.❤❤❤
