Minerva was the Roman goddess of crafts, wisdom, and war. This piece brings an easy to remember stitch pattern that works up quickly and is satisfying to look at. The hexagonal detailing represents the armour which Minerva was born into, with the contrasting colours bringing balance and style to this fast-knit piece.

As this cowl works up in a few hours, it is a perfect travel knit, gift, or tv watching project.

Sumptuous is a blend of Polwarth Wool and Alpaca Fibre, deliciously soft with a magic puff factor that allows her to gauge across many needles and patterns, so you can have a play with anything from DK to worsted, 4mm to 7mm.
