This stitch reminds me of taking a stroll in the woods near my home. The trees are ancient and seem to interweave with each other in an interesting way. Sometimes you can see through them, and sometimes they are too densely packed together.

The cowl is knitted as a double fabric in the round. It has the stitch effect on the front and plain stocking stitch on the back. It can be made narrower or longer to suit the wearer’s personal preference. Once the pattern is established this is a great project for in front of the TV. It uses a provisional cast on and then the two ends are Kitchenered together.

The cowl was knitted in Stylecraft Bellissima (100% acrylic) in colourway Rio Red 3932. It comes in small, medium and large width.

The matching hat can be found here - Elderwood Walk
