Flash of Briliance or Flash of Crazy

Okay, this post may be a flash of brilliance or a flash of crazy…I’m not sure. I have a bag full of tiny balls and not so tiny sock leftovers after working mitre squares from my Sock Yarn Memory Blanket. Look at all that crazy color!

I’m also a subscriber to Mary of Kino Knits newsletter. And one of the perks is coupons and sometimes a free pattern. She recently launched the Daunt Cowl and it’s free to subscribers. It’s just so gorgeous!!

What would happen if I made a crazy scrappy Daunt?? I could maybe make a rainbow, or just work crazy random colors, or maybe a stay in a single color family? I wouldn’t necessarily have enough of any one scarp to complete a stripe as Mary shows. But who’s to say my stripes need to be equal? I have some neutral sock yarns in stash to work in between. This pattern is specifically designed to use up bits and pieces. I am REALLY feeling the siren’s call of this project. All I’m missing is short circumference size 4 needles….

I think I need to send the toddler on a play date and just spread all my leftovers on the floor and have a party!

  1. Do it! The pattern is flexible, and the stripes don’t need to all be the same width. I can’t wait to see how it turns out!

    Thanks for highlighting my pattern! If anyone else wants it for free, you can sign up for my newsletter at kinoknits.com/newsletter.
