The Scrollwork hat and cowl set feature Irina Dmitrieva’s signature interlocking aran stitches. Dmitrieva has a knack for weaving with cables – evidenced here by the elegant integration of ribbed trims and crown shaping to create a seamless network of root-like motifs. Each accessory is a joy to knit and a great addition to any knitter’s wardrobe. Each project requires 2 skeins of Shelter, though both can be made with 3 skeins.


  • Hat is worked circularly from the bottom up.
  • Cowl is worked circularly from the top down.
