Inspired by the Australian sunsets of the Manawatu District where this yarn orginates, this cowl/hood is as practical as it is beautiful. Knit in the round with a classic wave pattern that shows the self-striping yarn to perfection, this garment is warm and cozy and oh, so stylish. Wear it up or down … and enjoy!

Any of the hand-dyed or self-striping worsted weight yarns will work for this beauty. I was fortunate enough to have a MIL who went to Australia and brought me this gorgeous yarn.

The directions for the pattern are both charted and written out, round by round.
