I’m beyond excited to share a secret I’ve been keeping for a few months now: this morning, my Biddeford cowl was released as part of Quince & Co.’s yearly publication, Scarves, etc. 7!
When Quince sent out their call for submissions last year, I had just finished knitting a cowl in their Lark yarn for my sister’s birthday. Reluctantly, I decided to take a chance and send it in. A few weeks later, I squealed with delight when an email arrived from the Quince team letting me know that it had been selected. It was one of those true, joyful moments in life.
Biddeford is the piece you’ll reach for time and again when you want a bit of comfort and warmth around your neck. When knitted in a neutral colorway, like this creamy Lark Canvas, it’s equally at home when worn over a blouse at work, layered over a flannel for pumpkin picking, or as a wool coat topper for date night with your partner.
The project uses just three skeins of Lark - a smooth and bouncy worsted-weight wool, and the lace pattern is perfect for both beginning knitters looking to expand their skills, as well as advanced knitters who want something interesting, but meditative on the needles.
I’m over-the-moon honored to be a part of this gorgeous collection, and hope this sweet and simple knit will help keep your necks warm and cozy all winter long. Get the Biddeford pattern here. Be sure to tag your projects with #BiddefordCowl!
Thank you, Quince!
