Spotted Giraffe Cowl



Contest Entry: 2012 09 - Designer of the Month



Knitter/Crocheter: Shui Kuen Kozinski
Gauge: Lace / 1 & 2 Ply
Project Type: Scarves
Project For: Women
Yarn Used: elann.com Silken Kydd
Pattern Used: Spotted Giraffe Cowl

Browsing on Thorny Acacia Tree,
Long leg, Long neck –
Spotted Giraffe.

While the Hexagon (also known as Honeycomb) pattern looks like complicated intarsia, it is actually as easy as knitting stripes! Only one color is used at a time, with the design achieved by slipping stitches from the previous round’s color. The slip stitches are slipped in pairs over 6 rows, but as they are the same two stitches and not elongated, they contract the fabric into hexagonal shapes. Two different-color yarns of similar ply are used in this sample. Available at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/spotted-giraffe-cowl.
