When I designed the Clonbur Cowl—named for the Village of Clonbur on the Galway/Mayo border—the slipped stitch texture reminded me of little lakes, like the ones that dot this area.

This fingering-weight cowl—with both written and charted directions—was created to be a palette cleanser. Perfect for when you need something easy and engaging in your hands! This cowl will give you a fun, easy, and wearable project to relax into. Filled with just slipped stitches, knits, and purls, it’s suitable for a confident beginner but engaging enough for a more advanced one. It’s a quick stash-busting project available in one size. This is a piece that can be reached for time and again.
