A stranded colourwork cowl inspired by the stones of Venice.

Featuring stranded colourwork, lace and cable stitches and knitted in the round, this cowl is inspired by the marble and brickwork of the Doge’s Palace in Venice. The design shows off the mottled, hand-dyed tones of yarns from the Bloomsbury DK range, by the Yarn Collective, which evoke the ancient stones of that iconic city.

This pattern is also available from The Border Mill for use with their Alpaca Tweed Silk.
