Simple knitting doesn’t have to be boring. Callakillie makes use of meditative linen stitch to create graduated colour changes and a supple, non-curling fabric. Worked in the round and then steeked (forming a hassle-free fringe), it’s a perfect mindless project as well as a perfect classic addition to your wardrobe.

Callakillie is available in two sizes, the short size will wrap once round your neck and the long two or even three times round for extra winter warmth.
