Shoulder Cozy - Shibui Drift and Silk Cloud Version

Shoulder Cozy - Shibui Drift and Silk Cloud Version

"One for you, one for me!"

We knitters want it all. An accessory that is capelet, poncho, and cowl, all in one please. That's the Shoulder Cozy. Gather it up around your neck when putting on your coat—slip it down over your shoulders when you get there. In two sizes (see Basic Details tab) and on a nice big needle, it's satisfyingly quick—so knit one for you, and one for a friend!

Knit in the round, alternating purl and knit rounds, the Shoulder Cozy has just the right amount of shaping to stay in place on your shoulders. Perfect for a bit of warmth over sleeveless tees and dresses. This version holds two Shibui fibers together throughout - worsted-weight Drift with lace-weight Silk Cloud. Fiber content alone make this a dream combination - merino, cashmere, silk and mohair. But look closely at the almost rustic textural twist of the two-ply Drift and the shimmer of the silk stranded along. Squishable softness all season long!

Below you'll find the pattern and some colorways we picked for you. If you'd like to create your own color combination, you'll need 2 skeins of Drift (3 skeins for Large/Extra Large) and 1 skein of Silk Cloud.

Sizing note: If you are interested in making the Large/Extra-Large, you'll need one additional skein of Drift. Head over to the yarn page and pop one into your cart.

Sample shown in S/M in Suit.

YOU'LL ALSO NEED
Churchmouse Classics Shoulder Cozy pattern;
US 13 (9mm) 24" circular knitting needles (or size to obtain gauge);
Darning needle to finish.

GAUGE
Approx. 9 sts = 4"/10cm in garter stitch using both yarns held together, after blocking.

Don't be tempted to work another cast-on method here. You really do want the stretch of the e-loop around the bottom where it will hit both your bust and your arms.

At the same time, don't work a traditional bind-off on this piece. Follow our instructions and work it loosely. If you have to, pull it out and try again. You're after a relaxed, stretchy neck edge so that you can style the finished piece in a variety of ways.
