This scarf or cowl is designed to be knit in colours that evoke the essence of the Australian sky. There is a brightness and light to the sky down under that is unparalleled anywhere in the world.
Lakorra is Wathaurong for sky.
The Wathaurong are the traditional land owners of the land on which I reside.
Knit at a loose tension, this is a light an airy knit that juxtaposes lace and garter stitch to create an extremely quick knit.
Instructions are included for working either the cowl or the scarf. The cowl is finished with five buttons.
Sample shown is the cowl version.
