New Pattern: Cerchiate

My new cowl pattern, Cerchiate, went live this week! This one's been in the works for a while, but I'm so pleased with the end result. I've had this skein of Malabrigo Sock in my skeins since my second year knitting, so it's been lurking for a while, and sometime last year I started brainstorming ideas with it. I finally started knitting in March, and then this got set aside for the rest of spring. I pulled it out again a couple of weeks ago, and fell back in love.

As I mentioned earlier, I was heavily inspired by the colors in this skein and by the play The Tempest. I really wanted to play around with the color changes and show off the depth of the yarn, and I'm so happy with how everything came together.

Cerchiate is available on Ravelry and in the wayward knitter pattern store. It's worked flat from a provisional cast on, then grafted, and as always, the lace patterns have both charted and written instructions.

Linking up with Yarn Along


  1. Beautiful cowl! I love how denim colored yarns look great with everything.

  2. the yarn is beautiful!! i love cowls, i just finished up one as well, mine is much smaller!!! i like this one doubled up!!!

  3. oh, it's stunning!! I love the mix of lace sections and stockinette (or garter?) to keep things interesting. Love it!

  4. I like the way it can be doubled up! gives twice the thickness of a warmth on a cold day!!
