About the Rhubarb Crumble Cowl
I love baking crumbles. They’re quick and easy, they’re almost impossible to screw up, and the crisp topping is a delightful exercise in texture. A lot of people use peach or apple, but sometimes that gets a little overpoweringly sweet. The slight tartness of rhubarb contrasted with the sweet, crackly topping hits all the right flavor notes for me.
This cowl has lots of texture, from small seed stitch pebbles to large bobbles to little eyelet holes, that is meant to mimic the topping of a good crumble. What’s more, the pattern is easy to memorize, just like a good crumble topping recipe. Because this is knit in a DK yarn and takes just one skein, it also works up quickly and makes for good gift-knitting.
