Linnea was the first piece created for this collection — I was taken with the plush, organic look of the large cable, and became curious to see how it would work in different types of accessories and varying yarn weights. With a gentle flare around the base, this cowl is both cozy and practical in Marianated Yarn’s soft Playtime Worsted. Most of the cables can be easily worked without a cable needle, and Linnea can be combined with any of the other pieces in The Virescent Collection to create a coordinating set.

This pattern contains both fully charted and written instructions.

Recommended Yarn:
Marianated Yarns Playtime Worsted, one skein — 100% superwash merino — 218 yds (199 m) to 100 g. Shown in colorway Emerald City. Sample shown used approximately 200 yds (183 m) of yarn.

22” (56 cm) around base and 18” (46 cm) around body, 9.5” (24 cm) high.

Gauge:
28 sts and 31 rows to 4” in cable pattern, centered over large motif, washed and blocked.

Needles:
US 7 (4.5 mm) circular needle, 16” Optional: You may find it easier to cast on and work bottom ribbing with a 24” circular, and then switch to 16” circular after sts have been decreased.
