I know I said that I need to finish my lingering WIPs, but all I want to do is cast on all the things. In particular, I am looking for a new colorwork project in my life. (Why not just knit the second Mīlēt mitten, you ask? Logic does not apply to my knitting, you guys). So when I saw the Oak Park Cowl by Monica at Em Lyn Knits, it just jumped to the top of my queue.
The Oak Park Cowl is a two-color, stranded cowl knit in fingering weight yarn. The graphic geometric pattern is inspired by the stained glass window design in Frank Lloyd Wright’s home in Oak Park, Illinois.
I am a sucker for all things local, and Oak Park is right around the corner from me. I also love Frank Lloyd Wright’s design aesthetic and I think the high-contrast design really pops. This looks like a fun project that an adventurous beginner could tackle.
What is your knit inspiration these days?
