The Urban Creative Exploration is a collaborative project inspired by the urban landscape. The inspiration photo was chosen by vote, and Indigodragonfly dyed up some amazing yarn inspired by its colours. Two designers, Sarah Schira from Imagined Landscape Designs, and Kristen Jancuk from MediaPeruana Designs, each crafted a one-skein accessory inspired by the same photo, using the custom colourway.
Taking inspiration from the winning photo, this cowlette pairs strong lines with delicate stitches for an airy piece that’s easy to wear and fun to knit.
A stockinette yoke dotted with eyelets lets the yarn’s color variation shine, and short rows are used to create a gentle wave before the piece transitions to an airy openwork stitch pattern set off by lateral braids. Pull it over your shoulders like a shawlette or wear it around the neck like a cowl—cowlette!
