Phykos is a lace and cable cowl that hints at its name – seaweed. Worked flat in rows and originally designed to teach chart reading, the cowl can be adjusted both in circumference and width, and instructions for making these adjustments are given in the pattern. Knit in Aran weight yarn in a striking color, Phykos adds punch to any simple outfit.

Lace and cable pattern is both written and charted. Instructions for adjusting the width and circumference are provided.
