I have recently been admiring the simplicity and sleek shapes in Italian design. My new patterns, Nautilo and Decorati reflect this inspiration, and are the first designs in a series which will be coming in the next few months. Hope you enjoy these!

This unusually shaped cowl drapes down the front, forming an echo of the nautilus shape.The design features simple short row wedges which naturally curve under along the bottom edge, and the top edge is turned down. Worked flat and seamed, the pattern is suitable for worsted or aran weight yarns. Instructions are written, no charts. Note that this design should not be stretched during blocking.

Materials used for sample (weighs 183g ~ 25” size is pictured):
Cloudborn Superwash Merino Worsted Twist
2 skeins Shaela Heather (both sizes)
