Folks, I introduce to you my little design Whorl’d Piece. Yes, it is a play on the words and very much a hopeful idea for ‘world peace’. I have blogged about the inspiration behind this spinnerly design in this post “Spinning Hope For The Future” .
A cowl for men & women with interesting cables & bobbles whorl around against a background of a wide rib pattern. Design was inspired by hand-spun from art fibers blended on my blending board, often from which the spinner creates only one or two balls of like yarn…( and also the hope for world peace! ) Perfect for using up those odd balls of stashed yarn in all weights! Whorl’d Piece is knit in-the-round, bottom up & seamless. Includes gauge substitution chart, and options for Plain Rib Cowl.
Here is a sample of Whorl’d Piece made with two strands of stashed sock yarn held together, which by the way, is exceptionally soft & stretchy …

I really love this design. I think its one of your most interesting! Thank you.
One of my most interesting… wow, thanks! xx
YA! The way the design crosses over the other. I keep thinking of all kinds of metaphors for world peace and Whorl’d!
Right… and we’re not talking about ‘whirled peas’ either. LOL
