SEI COWL

清 (Japanese) - calm, pure, stillness

Created in collaboration with the mYak yarn company for KORA club, this design originated with the color, Healing Blue, which represents healing and is an embodiment of the Tibetan Medicine Buddha, as he creates a sense of serenity and healing with his deep lapis blue halo. The cowl is comprised of series of meditative slip-stitch pattern motifs and worked top down as the repeats grow progressively in size, forming a slight trapeze shape, while baby yak fibers comfortably envelop your neck and shoulders to keep you snug and protected.

This pattern was originally designed as September installment for the members of mYak KORA yarn club.
