This design is part of Hilori’s Magical Yarnorium Cross Country Canada KAL July 2017 #xccroadtripkal. Head on over to her group to sign up and join in on the fun

This 6 layered cowl is a map of sorts taking you across my province of Saskatchewan. Knit your way along grid roads, passing canola and flax fields, and dipping your toes in one of our abundant freshwater lakes. Travel through the glacier carved valleys and up through the Canadian Shield nestled amongst the trees in the boreal forest up north. The scenery wouldn’t be complete without chasing the never ending horizon and the wide open skies watching the weather roll in.

Hilori’s Magical Yarnorium has dyed up a special colourway for this road trip. This cowl is kit in the round using 6 different stitch patterns to keep your interest, but simple enough to make the perfect travel project.
