“Sindi” is a new cowl design from Shibui for their very newest yarn, Nest.
It’s a simple stockinette tube, with a bit of reverse stockinette at the top and bottom, but it’s still an entertaining knit on account of the yarn itself.
“Sindi” is knit holding one strand of Nest together with two strands of Silk Cloud, changing which shades of Silk Cloud are in the mix as you go. This creates a subtle gradient from light to dark, and a luxuriously fuzzy texture.
Nest in Ivory, Silk Cloud in Ivory, Ash, and Graphite.
I knit our sample “Sindi” using Nest in Ivory and Silk Cloud in Ivory, Ash, and Graphite, a grayscale colorway, but there are so many other options between the Nest and Silk Cloud color palettes. One knitter who saw me working on the sample cleverly came up with a darker gray colorway, for her daughter who loves to wear black. I can’t wait to see it knit up!
Nest in Abyss, Silk Cloud in Ash, Graphite, and Abyss.
Here are a few others I dreamed up as I was photographing the yarn the other day.
