Simple embodied acts--walking, sipping tea, holding hands--can be forms of prayer. This same is true for the humble art of knitting. Especially during seasons of waiting, having work for our hands can help us focus our attention and settle our spirits. That's why we are so pleased to offer this Warmth for Waiting Cowl Knitting Pattern.
The inspiration for this design comes from the season of Advent - a season of waiting, longing, preparation, and expectation. During Advent we wait with hope and expectation for the coming of Christ. The colors of the cowl fade from dark at the front to bright at the back. Dark purples and blues are the traditional colors of Advent, which signify royalty to welcome the coming King, and this pattern suggests a bright orange to signify hope and light in the midst of our waiting.
May this cowl be a reminder to you that there can be light in the midst of darkness and hope in the midst of seasons of waiting.
