This capelet/cowl/hood, can be worn by both sexes, it is designed in two colourways.
Urban Troubadour is inspired by Medieval Times but with a modern feel to it. Knitted in six shades of an organic 4-ply Dorset Poll and plant dyed by Renaissance Dyeing in the French Pyrenees. These shades are dyed with the plants woad and madder that would have grown wild and used for dyeing in the Middle ages.
The design is part of a knitting kit, made in collaboration with Renaissance Dyeing. Together with other knit designs from 4 different designers world-wide, this knitting kit was presented during the London Knitnation 29-31 July 2010

I have noticed that there is a problem with the abbreviation p(k2tog)o I use in my pattern. It is briefly explained in the list of abbreviations at the top of the pattern, but allow me to clarify.
p(k2tog)o = k2tog, k1, pass k2tog over k1
In order to achieve this decrease, you will knit the next two stitches together, then knit one and pass the two knit-together stitches over this last stitch.
