The Garnet Cowl is the first pattern available from the “Birthstone Collection.” The idea behind the collection is that I wanted a theme for some of my 2020 patterns.
I decided that a collection of cowls, scarves, and shawls would be perfect items to help bring the theme together. Each month I will release a pattern in the color of the month’s birthstone.
The garnet stone isn’t a simple solid red, it has hints of orange and yellow within it. Because of this I had a hard time finding the perfect shade. After searching all the yarn aisles of my local craft stores, I finally found the perfect color. Lion Brand’s Wool-Ease Thick and Quick in the colorway ‘Claret’ is the perfect color to help bring out the beauty of the garnet.

Winters can be really cold here in Massachusetts. When designing this pattern I wanted something that would keep me nice and warm. I also wanted something that wasn’t really plain either. I’m a big fan of simple designs that pair well with the classic ‘jeans and t-shirt’ outfit.
I’d love to hear from you. Don’t hesitate to send me a private message or direct message on my social media accounts. Let me know what you’re working on or if there is a design you’re looking for.
