This pattern is also available as part of My Basic Collection - Book 1: an Eco-friendly e-book with 5 patterns (Mimo, Poveira, Afago, Equinócio and Eira).

Poveira is a simple collared cowl knitted bottom-up in garter stitch. The collar is worked with shortened rows adding a soft curvature in the back for extra comfort. It knits up quickly being perfect for last minute gifts. An instant gratification project that produces a great effect easily.
