Calliope Nest

This richly textured cowl with gorgeous threaded stitches (video tutorial included) evokes the color of the beautiful Calliope Hummingbirds native to the Pacific Northwest and their intricately woven nests.

 

Reversible and available in two-sizes (and easily customizable) this versatile cowl is an awesome stashbuster! Our smaller 27” circumference sample features leftover yarn from our faded Sorrel sweater. Mini-skeins would also work wonderfully in this design.

Knit in-the round with one strand of Sock yarn & one strand of lace mohair held together and featuring stunning interlocking 3-color faded (or not!) threaded stitches lined with sublime stockinette (a pop of color would work great here) this cowl is perfect for Spring!

Our samples feature SpunRightRound Classic Sock and Mohair Silk. The blend of these two fibers creates a dynamic fabric that has both exquisite softness and a cozy factor that’s off the charts! To be sure it’s warm so this combo is best for wintertime snuggles. The combination of mohair + sock creates an exciting opportunity to fade several colors together as the mohair has a magical way of blending and softening the colors held alongside it.
