New W+S Pattern: Chevron Sunshine Cowl

The Chevron Sunshine Cowl is the third of three patterns designed especially for TEA+WOOL, the tea-dyed yarn I created for WORK+SHELTER. It’s knit flat with an eyelet chevron pattern, and then seamed to create a cowl shape. It can be worn loose, or doubled up for extra warmth.

A few months ago, Allyson Dykhuizen invited me to work on a new yarn-dying project for WORK+SHELTER, called TEA + WOOL. This 100% wool yarn was dyed with Indian teas, and is available in our Etsy shop, with all proceeds going to WORK+SHELTER.

I’ve designed a few accessories especially for TEA + WOOL. The Chevron Sunshine Cowl is one of those accessories! By purchasing this pattern you are helping this amazing cause. Read more about this project here, donate by emailing Theresa, and when someone compliments you on your beautiful new cowl, be sure to tell them about WORK+SHELTER.

WORK+SHELTER is a new foundation started by Allyson’s friend, Theresa VanderMeer. WORK+SHELTER offers women living in the slums of New Delhi a fresh start. Theresa is working to give these women decent living conditions and a chance to build a better future. WORK+SHELTER will be a safe place where women can come with their children to live and work. She will be providing training, materials, and a fair wage, and members of WORK+SHELTER will be producing products to be sold in boutiques around the world.
