Stranded colourwork in a striking geometric pattern with a (Moebius) twist: Sound Check is given a half-turn before joining for a deep cowl with gentle folds that sits nicely against the neck. The pattern includes instructions for a wide single loop and a narrower double loop, as well as an illustrated tutorial for the crocheted provisional cast on used in the sample. To make Sound Check, you will need to know how to do stranded colourwork in the round using charts. Designed in collaboration with Camp Color.

Pattern available on Ravelry or Payhip.

  1. I need a bit of clarification on the repeat instruction of the pattern. Do I repeat the whole row on the chart or repeat only to the end of the first red box?

    1. My apologies for the slow reply–I’ve been sick with the dreaded illness this week.

      When you cast on, you placed a marker at the middle of the round as well as at the end of the round. The first half of the stitches–from the end of round to the middle–are Side A, and the second half are Side B. So, per the chart key, you repeat the stitches in the red box to the mid-point marker, then you repeat the stitches in the blue box to the end of the round.

      Does that help? If you’d like more clarification or have more questions about the pattern, you can also email me using the contact form or at elizabeth (at) eelliottknits (dot) com.
