Birdwatcher Kit is available in two options—a complete kit with the PDF pattern download and all the Spud & Chloë by Blue Sky Fibers Fine needed to knit this cowl and mitts set and a kit containing only the yarn if you have previously purchased the pattern.
Birdwatcher from Twist Collective is a cowl and fingerless mitts set featuring a stranded feather pattern. The cowl and mitts are both worked in the round from the bottom up. Knit in Spud & Chloë by Blue Sky Fibers Fine, a delightfully soft and machine-washable blend of superwash wool and silk, Birdwatcher is the perfect set to keep you warm on nature walks through late winter and into early spring. With so many colors of Fine to choose from, you can knit your own plumage! Note: the feathers pattern is charted only.
