Black Walnut-Dyed Cowl Pattern
I am so thrilled with how my walnut dyed yarn turned out, and could not wait to turn it into a usable piece! I love the idea of having knitted items dyed with natural materials - it makes growing and foraging things seem resourceful and more tightly connected to nature. I know, a little hippy, but I am ok with it:)
I wanted to create a piece highlighting the subtle shifts in color within the natural dye. I love knitwear that makes a statement and is simple and textural. This cowl is more structured, yet still soft and warm. Happy knitting!
