Nelkin Designs Circo Cowl PDF
The Circo Cowl by Laura Nelkin is not your usual cowl pattern. This fun and fascinating design begins with a provisional cast on and a reversible cable that is knit flat as a strip. Before the ends are grafted, the knitting is twisted, creating a moebius. Afterward, stitches are picked up on either side of the cable piece, a lace pattern is worked, and eye-catching beads add the finishing touch. Knit this accessory in a gradient dyed yarn to showcase the unusual construction, or in a solid for a more subtle look.
