The denim blue and orange is worked to the smaller size and this has a real feel of Autumn, not surprising considering that was the time of year I knit it and I was inspired the colours around me when taking a walk in the forest. It was teemed with a nice denim blue to create a cowl that I could slip on underneath a light jacket when I went for a walk at that time of year. It goes well with the casual denim end of my wardrobe.
The pink and white colour is the sample knit of this pattern. It was created to really show off how two contrasting colours could blend so well together, each running alongside each other yet neither one over powering the other.
Some of my testers picked two completely different contrasting colours and got the same effect and it is really quite eye-catching. This version always inspires me to think of a black and white cowl and just how amazing and colour popping that one would be. If you knit one in that particular colour combination please do get in touch and show me I’d love to see!
Now the last colour combination I knit was inspired by that stream and that raindrop I mentioned earlier! You will notice that compared to the first and second cowls, it is soothing and calm and was knit in the longer version so I have multiple ways of wearing this one and it goes with my entire casual wardrobe because the blue and cream are quiet and understated so they blend and compliment everything. I also tend to wear this more in Spring time.
This cowl provides the ability to have multiple versions that are different in both look and feel, and all come down to the colour choice I made when starting the project.
So for your Cosán what colours inspire you? Do you want soothing and calming, quiet and understated or something that is going to add that pop of colour?
