Northlink Cowl plays with two contrasting exclusive colors of North Light Fibers Forever Lace. Forever Lace is a scrumptious alpaca/bamboo blend that has stunning drape. Northlink is knit with a 2-color slipped and dipped stitch that is peppered with 5 colors of coordinating beads.

Kits for Northlink were sent as the second shipment for 2022’s N Club and will be available to the public in October 2023.

Worked in the round from the bottom up once you get the rhythm of this cowl you will be in the groove. The beads are purposefully pre-strung and lay on the right side of the fabric only making this cowl a perfect cold weather knit. The crowning finish to this cowl is a Latvian braid worked on both ends of the tube once your knitting is complete.
