Inspired by the repetitiveness of mosaic tiles, Plumetis is a drapey summer cowl pattern knitted in a soft cotton yarn.
The cowl is dotted with lacy diamonds slowly fading away into scattered eyelets placed on a background of stockinette. The main lace pattern is easy to remember and creates a fun and airy texture. After a number of rounds, the all-over pattern recedes and variation kicks in, creating a denser fabric.
