The Gaelic word Figh—pronounced FEE—means “to weave” or “woven,” and in Scots Gaelic, it even means ‘to knit.’ When I saw this definition, I knew it needed to be named the Figh Cowl because it was inspired by two things—my great-grandfather, who was the town weaver, and my obsession with designing and creating friendship bracelets as a teenager. From all this inspiration came this cowl.

Much thought was put into making this cowl a relaxing experience for you. Mosaic charts are offered in both light on dark and dark on light so that you don’t have to try and switch them in your head!

This mosaic cowl is a fast and engaging knit, that you will not be able to put down. You will be saying, ‘just one more row’. Designed in two colors, it will allow you to play with color and imagine all of the variations that are possible with this fun knit. It’s easy enough for a confident beginner knitter but engaging enough for an 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.
