For those occasions when you want to be warm and look fabulous at the same time… Oran Mor is a fitted cowl with lashings of style. Oran Mor is Scots Gaelic for ‘The Great Song’ and is also a theatre/restaurant/bar in Glasgow’s West End.
The main body of the cowl is made up of lots of loops, backed by a layer of stocking stitch. The top and bottom edges are finished with garter stitch in a contrast colour.

Two skeins of the main colour are required and only a small amount of contrast colour yarn. Colours used in the sample are 2 X 50g Shade 373 (Pumpkin) and 1 X 50g Shade 377 (Cinnamon).
The size of the cowl with correct tension/gauge is: Circumference - 52cm / 20.5” Height - 17cm / 6.75”.
Instructions for knitting the loop stitch are included in the pattern.
