BUITENGAATS cowl - by Antoinette Andriese (@Beauxknits)
Using only 2 skeins of DIJK- Dutch Yarn Barns’ limited edition of Dutch heritage yarn - you can fabric the cowl Buitengaats. This Dutch expression stands for sailing the high seas. A wild place where waves will surround you, visually breaking the skyline of your horizon.
So do the texture and the making of Buitengaats. On TDYB’s request for a new and authentic Dutch fishermens’ knitting project, Dutch designer Beauxknits integrated two stitch patterns into a brand new one. Two various sized knitted cables continually intervene rounds of horizontal purled stripes. A bold, wavy rich texture is its result, mimicking the ropes and cabled that every sailor has to know when taking the sea.
The Buitengaats Cowl is a piece of robust knitwear, featuring Dijk in all its pure and ecofriendly glory.
Is it difficult to make? On the contrary. As the purls grid the cables, the cowl is an easy count. The chart you will knit is minimal, with a multiple of 14 stitches and repeat of 16 rounds. Next to a warm garment for him and her, it promises Zen for your head and yoga for your fingers.
Zand and Buitengaats will be included in the kit as a hardcopy. Leave us an email in your orderfield with your Ravelry name, so that in due course you may receive the pattern in your Ravelry library as a digital file. The Sweaterkits do not include a pattern, the pictures show the heavily cabled Dione Sweater by Moonstruck knits, shown on a S size model knit with 550 gram. It is available as a separate pattern on Ravelry.
Orders will be shipping out as of 8th of December, 3 times a week before Christmas.
Pre-orders for indigodyed Seafoam colourway now available, shipping out before Christmas.
