Cordatus Cowl & Mitts
This stranded-work set takes its name from a Latin word meaning “heart shaped,” reflecting the elaboration of a heart design of the main motif on both the mitts and cowl.
In this Cordatus Cowl and Mitts set, scrollwork and small crosses are found in the border and secondary designs. A six-round corrugated rib edges both patterns. The set is worked in the round carrying only two colours per round and can be completed using one skein of three colours of SweetGeorgia sock yarn (either BFL Sock or Tough Love Sock).
