Cosy Knits is available both as a print book here (with a complementary digital download) or digital only.

Originally published as part of the Cosy Knits book, Móin is now available for individual purchase as a Ravelry download, or through Payhip.

Móin (the Irish for peat) is a cowl worked in two colours, with a cable motif worked over a striped garter stitch background. The pattern is worked in the round, and is written in two sizes. The cable is inspired by classic rope cables that often feature on Aran designs.

Notes for printing
My hope is to enable knitters, if working from printed copies, to print only what you need. The individual pattern purchase includes three separate files. Please use the one that suits you best:

  1. All the information, includes chart and written instructions for the cable motif.
  2. Chart only instructions for the cable motif.
  3. Written only instructions for the cable motif.
