I loved the cable pattern in Kitra so much I decided to design a cowl and a hat with the same cable pattern. Kitra means “crowned one,” and the beautiful name reflects the crown of cables entwined in this cowl. Now you wear a crown around your neck. It was also designed with Shibui Dune, a mix of baby camel and silk forming a deeply hued yarn that knits into a rich fabric without losing its natural roots. This cowl is royal enough for your special affairs and natural enough for daily use.

This pattern has been tech edited and test knitted.

I used the two yarns held together to make a heavy DK or light worsted weight, Anything from a sport to aran weight will work for this pattern.
