Snow Fence Cowl. Lumetõke.

I've been recently working with different types of yarns to try them out. I made a project in a "blown" yarn, where the fibres are blown in a tube. It makes the yarn so light and warm, very nice to work with. I can't show the project yet though. 
Next, I wanted to try a chain-type yarn. I picked three colours of Drops Sky, which is super soft, light and luxurious due to the tube-like chainette structure. I designed a fun mosaic pattern for a cowl. This pattern has quite a long floats on the wrong side, need to take care and leave them loose enough to keep the work from puckering. The cowl is worked as a tube, so all the floats are hidden inside and wouldn't disturb you at all. Mosaic knitting is a good beginners colorwork project as just one of the colours is worked per round. Make a perfect "unisex" winter accessory in no time at all! 

The Snow Fence cowl or scarf is a double-layered, warm and cozy winter accessory, protecting you against Arctic winds and snowstorms. You can work a cowl, moebius cowl or a scarf following this pattern. All the versions are knitted in rounds in mosaic stockinette stitch, creating a long tube. Three colours of yarn were used, swapping one out after each repeat. However, the cowl or scarf can be made using just two colours.

Vahel on tore proovida uusi, huvitavaid lõngu. Hiljuti kudusin Drops Air lõnga, mis on nn "puhutud" lõng. Ma ei saa seda projekti veel näidata, kunagi hiljem räägin pikemalt. Lõng oli meeldiv kududa, väga kerge ja soe.
Teine huvitav lõng Drops'ilt on Drops Sky, millest kudusin selle kaeluse. Ka see on kerge ja soe lõng, keti-sarnase struktuuriga. Kaeluse jaoks kasutasin kolme värvitooni. Muster on kootud mosaiik-koes, seega korraga on töös ainult üks värv. Kaks ringi ühe lõngaga, kaks ringi teisega, nii lihtne see mosaiik ongi! Kaelus on kootud nagu toru, ja lõpuks otsad kokku silmatud. Sama mustri järgi võib ka salli kududa. Kasutada võib ka ainult kaht värvi, ei pea kolm olema. Minu arvates on muster üsna "unisex", sobib nii naisele, kui ka mehele. Mustri nimeks on Snow Fence, vabas tõlkes Lumetõke. Sel aastal peaks vist hoopis ümber nimetama Tuule- või Tormitõkkeks?
