Kumquat Cowl - Knitting
This cowl, all textured with its bobbles and delicate cables, is inspired by the kumquat tree, with its slightly acid fruits and well drawn leafs.
A photo tutorial on how to knit the bobbles is available on my blog : http://soleneknits.blogspot.fr/2014/11/photo-tutorial-make-bobble-tuto-photo.html

My name is Solène, I live in Paris and I’ve been designing knitwear for over two years. I self-publish throug Ravelry and Makerist and I have three design to be published in third-party publications (Knit Picks, Knit Now and Holla Knits).
Crafts are for me a family tradition. My grandmother was a profesional dressmaker and I spent my childhood playing with spools of thread and fabric. My mother is more a knitter, and she is the one who taught me how to knit when I was a kid.
