We love getting to know the designers behind the knit, so we asked Meg:
What tip do you have for our knitters when they knit this cowl?
Use a slick knitting needle. The mohair fibers can be a bit sticky and move more easily when knitting with smooth metal needles. I am quite fond of my ChiaGoo needles for a project like this.
What is your favourite guilty pleasure?
Cheese. No, chocolate. No, pastry. No, fresh baked bread. Who am I kidding? Pretty much any food.
