Last year, the Sweet Paprika girls (Elizabeth and Debbie) asked me if I would be interested in contributing a pattern for a collection they were planning and of course I said “Yes!”
Sweet Paprika Designs is a company that the two created in order to sell their beautiful hand-dyed yarns and knitting patterns. They are an incredibly talented and creative pair and it has been an honor to be included as one of the designers featured in their “Cloudy Day Collection” (Ravelry link).
My pattern from the collection is the Quiet Cowl pattern (Ravelry link), a simple cowl with a small lace detail. It was a lot of fun to design and knit, especially since I got to work with gorgeous Sweet Paprika yarn for the sample. The sample cowl was worked up in Sweet Paprika’s dk yarn, “Minuet” in the colourway “Mango”.
As the sample knitting was done last year before the challenge started, that project was not eligible for challenge points.
This project now serves as a knitted sample of this yarn. I made this last month and am finally posting it here!
Ana has also knitted a version of the cowl in her handspun yarn and it is beautiful!
