If you purchase 5 patterns from my store at the same time (they need to be in the same cart before you check out), you will get the least expensive for free.

This design is a collaboration with SnailYarn.

Valentina of SnailYarn and I met in Germany at Wollfest Hamburg 2016, while chatting and laughing we spontaneously got the idea to collaborate. This is the result.

Ciao! is a cozy cowl, seamlessly worked in the round with columns of cables and eyelets.

The pattern includes full written instructions, charts and a photo tutorial.

2 skeins of SnailYarn merino DK (100% extrafine Merino SW, 115 gr-230m/251yds), color Cloud.

US 7 (4.5 mm) 24” (60 cm) circular needle or size to obtain gauge. Stitch marker, cable needle, tapestry needle.

23 sts x 34 rnds = 4” (10 cm) in cable pattern, blocked.
One cable pattern repeat, blocked = 6.3” x 1” (16 x 2.5 cm). Gauge is not crucial but will effect final size and yardage.

Finished dimensions
Approx 25.6” (65 cm) circumference, x 18“ (45 cm) height.

Special thanks to Valentina and my fantastic testers. Without you this pattern would not exist. Hugs to all of you!
