This is simply gorgeous in handspun from handpainted tops and it really accentuates multi-colors, but sometimes you might have more or less handspun than is called for - since this pattern is knit top down, if you are short its not too much of a problem, if you have extra, you can just make it taller. It works wonderfully for any of the wonderful wooliebullie colorways and is suitable for men, women or teens.
Some of my photos show handspun examples that have different numbers of segments to allow for the quantity of yarn available at the time. These handspun requirements can vary somewhat due to fiber content and spinning styles.
This also works great for commerical yarn and if you use the Marble Chunky suggestion, it is a large 200 gram skein so you can get several cowls out of one skein or have lots left over for another project.
This listing is for the KNITTING PATTERN which you can instantly download in PDF format directly through your Etsy transaction once you have completed payment.
