Denali cowl pattern by Allison O’Mahony


Denali is an Aztec-influenced two-colour cowl. The fabric
is doubled for added warmth, but it is knit at a relaxed
gauge that produces a beautiful drape. It is also
reversible; the inside is worked in a simple salt and
pepper pattern that provides a nice break from
following the larger chart.

Construction Notes
Denali is knit in the round to form a doubled fabric. The cowl is finished by grafting live stitches to the cast on edge, forming a seamless tube. This construction gives the piece extra warmth and structure, and also allows for a continuous, jog-free colourwork pattern.
