Masyaf is a soft and smooshy hood that doubles as a wonderful cowl when the hood is down. With shaping to fit over the shoulders and dip into your jacket at front and back, and self-gathering at the front, you’ll have warmth without the bulk.

Knit with super bulky yarn, Masyaf is a relatively quick knit.

» This pattern is recommended for slightly advanced knitters as it uses several repeats of short rows. (wrap & turn)

Finished measurements:
20 inches (51 cm) from top of head to lowest point
22 inches (56 cm) in circumference

You will need:
» 174 yards (160 metres) super bulky yarn
» 13US / 9mm 21” circular needle
» 1 stitch marker (you may want to have some scrap yarn with you to make temporary markers while working the short-rows)
» Tapestry needle

9sts & 16 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) in stockinette st
