Description

Not a fan of mohair? Fear not! For this kit, we've paired Spincycle's color-shifting Dyed in the Wool with Cirro from The Fibre Co. (Suri Alpaca & Merino wrapped around a thread of organic cotton to make a light, airy yarn), so your finished cowl will be warm, soft, and fluffy, with the perfect balance of body and drape. Start with a provisional cast-on, then knit sideways to create a tube...finish with a half twist, some kitchener stitch, et voilà! An easy-to-wear cowl that'll keep you warm and super-cozy in chilly weather.

Note: We will purchase the pattern for you on Ravelry, as well as email you the digital file, and include a printed copy with your order. (Please provide your email and Ravelry name, if available.)
