I proudly present to you my newest knitting pattern, Hemera, available for just $5. This is a super cute bandana style cowl with a herringbone pattern that just can’t be beat.
This pattern has a few tricky parts- it is knit in the round with stranded color work but it also has short rows on the bottom. If you’ve never done short rows before, don’t be afraid, they’re not too difficult. However, knitting color work back and forth can be a little persnickety, so if you’ve never done fair isle knitting before just beware–I’m not saying you won’t be able to do it, it just may present itself as a bit of a challenge. I’m all about challenging oneself, though! And I am always here to help you out if you get stuck.
And now for more photos, because they can say so much more than the words I type here.
PS I am a little bit obsessed with chevrons lately. I try to cheat by using herringbone (see lace version in this pattern), which is technically a little different… but let’s face it, Chevrons are just so great! Whats not to love about a zig zag? I may not be able to understand why brightly colored macaroons are a craze of late, but I can definitely get on board with the chevs.
