Diamonds Cowl by TanisKnits | Living creatures are always preparing for something. Animals prepare for winter by gathering food and readying their homes for chilly weather. Plants underground prepare for spring; all winter long, they bide their time in the frozen ground waiting for the thaw and then burst forth and blossom into a beautiful flower. Crafters prepare their projects by spinning their fiber, choosing their color palette, or gathering their materials. Worked in the round seamlessly from the bottom up, this stranded colorwork cowl is knit in highly contrasting shades of a singles DK weight yarn. The diamond shapes represent flowers booming and then returning to the earth to sleep until the following year.
