Crassula
Knit a cosy double layered cowl with the Crassula cowl pattern and practise your stranded colourwork skills. Crassula knits up quickly and features a fun stitch pattern that blends traditional fair isle patterns into a modern gradient. The simple, geometric pattern is easy to follow and perfect for colourwork beginners, while the shifts in pattern across the length of the cowl will hold the interest of more experienced knitters. The cowl is gently shaped to sit snugly around your neck and flare out around your shoulders. The two layers of the cowl are worked as one long tube. Before and after the stranded colourwork you’ll work a section of plain stockinette, beginning with a provisional cast on. When the knitting is complete the provisional cast on is removed and the two ends are joined together with a three-needle bind off, using a neat trick to turn the join to the inside — don’t worry there’s a video!
