連歌 | RENGA : Japanese for (n) brick. This original reversible pattern is reminiscent of brickwork construction.

If you love cowls, you will adore this reversible design. Using a new stretcherbond brick style stitch pattern and thick yarn, you will appreciate the attention to detail and stylish edge this piece provides. Whether you choose to wear it long or looped, subtle or with colour punch, this cowl ticks all the boxes.

Three cowl sizes are detailed in the pattern: suitable for 1 skein, 2 skeins and 3 skeins of your favourite yarn. Two options for the edges are also provided: I-cord bind-off or the ever stylish stocking stitch.

The written pattern provides detailed instructions, along with photos and schematic. The cowl is seamless and worked in the round.
