Chevzam!

Fun to say, funner to look at! (And pretty fun to knit, too!) I figured it was high time I got on the chevron bandwagon...

  Chevzam Cowl 

I'd put this cowl firmly in the category of "low pressure colorwork that looks more impressive than it should" and as you know, I do so love things that look harder than they are.

The doubly-thick layer of Malabrigo Merino is soooo lush, and the color combos are endless (I hit up my fave4ever, Frank Ochre, and his pals Sauterne, Natural, and Pearl. I love how lavender the Pearl looks next to those yellows! Colors are magical!)

  1. Alex! It's my favorite! I'm so mad that I didn't design it first, but if it had to be someone else I'm so glad that it was you.

  2. As always, the most clever ideas are simple. I love the elegant geometry and the color combination!

    1. Thanks! It's a great place to start- just 2 colors per row and the floats aren't very long at all :-)

  4. This is great! I love me a good chevron and this is great way to play around with different color combinations. Maybe some NEONS & neutrals :)

    1. Actually if I'd had neon Mal when I started this it probably would've made it in, but this guy's been sitting around unblocked for months.
