This richly textured cowl with gorgeous threaded stitches (video tutorial included) evokes the color of the beautiful Calliope Hummingbirds native to the Pacific Northwest and their intricately woven nests.

Reversible and available in two-sizes (and easily customizable) this versatile cowl is an awesome stashbuster! Our smaller 27” circumference sample features leftover yarn from our faded Sorrel sweater. Mini-skeins would also work wonderfully in this design.

Knit in-the round with one strand of Sock yarn & one strand of lace mohair held together and featuring stunning interlocking 3-color faded (or not!) threaded stitches lined with sublime stockinette (a pop of color would work great here) this cowl is perfect for Spring!

We did a 3-color fade (the first 3 colors from our original Sorrel fade) using the 4th color from the hem for the stockinette lining. GET CREATIVE you totally don’t have to use the same colors as your Sorrel, this can be faded with 4 or even 5 colors if you want to use up scrap yardage with a color pop for the lining (200yds small/400yds large for lining.)

Finished Measurements: Small (Large)
Small: 27”(54”) cowl circumference by 10” wide (both sizes)
