Knitworthy 5
The collection features 8 patterns intended to make good gifts for everyone on your knitworthy list (because life’s too short to knit for anyone who doesn’t love what you make). Patterns from the collection will be sold individually on the 17th of December.

Make the most of a single skein of a luxurious yarn. The Poza cowl is worked in the round from the bottom up with gentle shaping to taper it towards the neck. It’s long enough to drape in beautiful, soft folds or to pull up on the coldest days. The border stitch pattern looks much more elaborate than it is and the chevron shapes are echoed with sparsely dotted little Vs above the border. The cowl begins and ends with a twisted rib edging, not my favourite to work but absolutely worth the effort in a yarn like this.
