The finished cowl measures 25cm/10" high and 58cm/23" around.

Thomasina is one of 16 glorious designs in Stranded Knits, a superb technique manual and pattern collection that Ann created for Rowan Yarns. The book is available from Rowan stockists.

The cowl uses a stitch pattern adapted from the Sylvia cardigan, based on Chippendale trellis with Norwegian style motifs. The use of travelling colourwork as a design feature independent of shaping needs was inspired by the wonderful work of fellow designer, Kieran Foley.

The book includes illustrated tutorials for stranded colourwork and the increases used in this pattern.
