This trio of garments is the result of a design challenge given to the Northwest Men’s Knitting Retreat to use Cobasi, by HiKoo, in their designs. Mark Ellis designed a clever Tam that uses four colors of Cobasi, but never more than one at a time, and the best part is there are next to no ends to weave in! Charles Parker’s Neckwrap is a clever combination of pattern and color, and the pattern can be done in both a shorter version (shown), and a longer scarf length. Donald Sutton designed Bronwyn’s Mittens for his daughter, and in Cobasi, they are a light, comfortable option for the not-too-cold transitions from autumn to winter and from winter to spring.
Each pattern uses one hank each of four colors of Cobasi (even the longer version of the Neckwrap). The Tam uses One each 3.25 mm (approx US 3) and 3.5 mm (approx US 4) 16” circular needles; 3.5 mm (approx US 4) DPNs. The Neckwarmer uses 3.25 mm (approx US 3) 40 inch circular needle. And the Mittens uses 3.25mm (approx US 3) 24 inch circular needle and 3.25mm (approx US 3) double pointed needles
