Scamander is a delightfully cushy cowl, worked in a deceptively easy two row pattern repeat. The clever selvedge and grafted seam result in a completely reversible winter accessory, which utilises one full skein of the nominated yarn.

A kit for this cowl is available from White Gum Wools and includes the pattern. They also sell their yarn by the ball, and ship internationally.
