Harmonia's Rings Cowl
This cowl, which uses Cat Bordhi’s Moebius cast on to achieve its mysterious spiral shape, is worked from the center out
in a self-pleating stitch pattern that adds to the warmth and coziness of this graceful garment.
The cowl can be stretched over most of the head for extra warmth and protection against the elements.
Pattern includes instructions for beaded picot bind off, and a chart for the cowl stitch pattern.
Note on needle lengths: You will need a long circular needle for the Moebius portion of the pattern.. 47” is recommended. You will also need a 24” or 32” long circular needle for the in-the-round portion.
Cat Bordhi has graciously provided instructions for doing the Moebius cast on on Youtube. Enjoy!
