Tectum Cowl

tectum - means a cover or shield - it is also the word for cell, as in the cells of the honeycomb.

Pattern is both written and charted - with US and metric equivalents.

A dual sided reversible cowl with different and unique texture on each side.

Works up fast with Jumbo yarn and big needles.

Simple to knit slipped stitch lace pattern. The stitch pattern chart/description seems complex but is truly very simple.

Requires blocking.


90 yd (82 m) of Jumbo yarn @ 2WPI
~ Sample used 1 hank of Malabrigo Rasta, I highly recommend using the Rasta!

US 17 (12.75 mm) or US 15 (10 mm) Needles
~ I knit tightly, and used US 17/12.75 mm for sample - if you knit loosely try the US 15/10 mm

Row counter
Tapestry needle
Blocking wires &/or T-pins
Blocking surface

2 (+) pairs of different 1.25” -1.5” (3 - 4 cm) buttons ~ will be sewn together back to back to create ‘anywhere’ buttons

Elastic thread ~ for buttons


Blocked Sample = 9 by 29.5” (23 by 75 cm)


Gauge is not critical, but will affect yardage and size!

For yarn/needle selection = 8 sts = 4” (10 cm)
