Named for the desert-dwelling people of Frank Herbert’s fictional planet Arrakis from the novel “Dune,” this cowl features cables and lace which alternate to create soft textured chevrons in this oversized cowl. Wear it loose or pin it up for a closer fit. Uses 1-2 skeins (approx. 400 yards) of fingering weight yarn.

Model is knit in an alpaca/silk/linen blend yarn. The best yarn options would have some drape, but most fingering weight yarns would work well with the textured stitches.

Pattern includes both written and charted instructions. Approx. 38” circumference and 11.5” deep, after blocking.
