Dunadh describes a Gaelic poem that ends as it begins. Its pronunciation is similar to Donna. The Dunadh Cowl merges its beginning and end with cables staggered across the moebius cast on and an elegant cabled bind off with no visible beginning or end. Even in a winter as unending as a moebius, you will be prepared. In better weather, wear it as a folded collar. If the weather takes a turn for the worse, pull it up as a hood. May be worked in any worsted yarn with a nice drape.

Thanks to all who suggested names, and congratulations to Corglet, whose suggestion inspired the winning name. I’ll send you a copy of my upcoming book, being published by Cooperative Press in October. There were many terrific suggestions, and if I use yours later, I’ll send you a gift too.
