For many knitters, the rhythm of our needles and the slip of our stitches is a huge part of daily life. It is our passion, our therapy, and our creative outlet. It is a wooly heartbeat that underscores much of what we do and how we see ourselves. This cowl was inspired by two great things: the rhythm of our knitting and some really fantastic yarn.

  • Requires 100g of self striping sock yarn, carried together with 100g of comparable solid colour yarn. Suggested yarn: Caterpillargreen Yarns MCN, 1 skein “Concrete and Tulips” self striping, 1 skein natural.

  • Size: 66cm (26in) laid flat and measured end to end.

  • Difficulty: Easy to intermediate. Features tips on how to carry two yarns at once and create the single-coloured heartbeat cable. Requires knowledge of kitchener stitch.
