Walking through our small beach town, I was stopped by the classic beauty of a Zinnia. The grand size of the flower caught my eye but it was the complex subtleties that drew my full attention. Inspired by this striking magenta flower with tiny yellow stars popping up in the middle like flowers within a flower, Garden of Zinn was born.

Knit in the round, the Garden of Zinn cowl begins with a ribbed edge, transitions to a charted two-color stranded knitting stockinette body, then back to a ribbed edge. This cowl fits comfortably close to the neck so choose yarn you know to be soft on the skin.

Finished dimensions, flat & blocked (WxH):
Small - 9.75 x 9” (24.75 x 22.75cm)
Large - 11 x 9” (28 x 22.75cm)
