5 for 4 – if you buy any 5 Åsa Tricosa patterns at the same time you get the least expensive one for free.

A rhythmic mix of mesh and arching cathedral window cables give Loggia an elegant and comfortable shape.

Loggia is worked in the round from the bottom upwards with slight shaping towards the top.

The large cowl in the photos requires 1 skein of Faery Wings or approximately 100 grams of any 4ply or sport weight yarn.

Size S (L)
Bottom circumference: approx 70 (90) cm / 28 (35 1/2) in
Top circumference: approx 55 (65) cm / 21 1/2 (25 1/2) in
Length: approx 25 (51) cm 10 (20) in

Choose from brief charted instructions or the line-by-line directions.

Techniques linked to in the pattern:

The explanation for M1L (in Abbreviations) is wrong. It should be: Make 1 Left: with LN pick up bar between sts from below and from front, knit into back leg of this loop.

NOTE: It’s not possible to shorten the cowl toward the top, so if you think yardage is an issue, skip a repeat or two of Chart B in one of the steps. This is particularly important if you are a loose knitter – I used the entire skein for my sample (am not a loose knitter).

To block or not to block – an eternal question. For squishiness, don’t. For lacy elegance, do.
