Like my Fallen Feathers Hat, this cowl is inspired by the walks my son and I love to take in the woods. We enjoy finding special treasures on our walks and fallen feathers are our favorite keepsakes to find and collect. For a great handknit set you can pair your Fallen Features Cowl with the Fallen Feathers Hat. Or, wear the cowl alone as a stunning statement piece. Knit in Myak Tibetan Cloud, this 100% Tibetan Wool is a natural beauty, creating a lightweight yet very warm fabric. Beauty and function come together in this special knit.

NEEDLES:
Needles listed are suggested. Always take time to swatch.
• Gauge Needle: Size US 5 (3.75 mm) 16”circular needle
• Optional Needle: One size smaller than Gauge Needle. (See Notes)

TOOLS:
• Waste yarn
• Stitch marker
• Extra set of needles in the same size as gauge needle
for grafting
• Tapestry needle

NOTES:
• Worked in the round, this cowl uses a provisional cast on
and Kitchener stitch grafting. You are essentially knitting a
tube and then closing it up when you finish.
• Stranded colorwork knitting often tightens ones gauge;
therefore consider going down a needle size when working
Stockinette stitch. Should you choose this method, you will
need needles in one size smaller than gauge needle.
