Back in October my husband and I took a road trip to Arkansas and stumbled across this amazing yarn shop in Hot Springs, appropriately named Hot Springs Fiber Co.
The owner, Tracie has a huge selection of hand dyed yarns that she dyes herself with the water from the hot springs, which makes the colors so vibrant! I couldn’t buy just one, so I picked up multiple colors and different fibers to create some new designs with.
The first design I have completed using her yarn is this fun knit cowl. I used a sample pack of yarn that features 6 of the different fibers that Tracie offers in her shop.
I knew that with so many different fibers I wanted to showcase each with a different stich, so there are 5 different stitches used in this cowl with the first and last fibers are worked in a 1 x 1 ribbing.
My favorite stitch from this design is the one in the middle, which makes me think of birds flying in the distance.
This stitch pattern is created using “pass one stitch to the right” which is the most complicated stitch of the entire cowl. Since this stitch is not one that we come across often in knitting, I have created a YouTube tutorial to show you how to work it.

If you are in Hot Springs, make sure you stop by Tracie's shop and say "hi", and don't forget to tell her I sent you!
Happy Knitting friends!
