Some days, we feel simple, content. Like a happy little sparrow soaking up the sunshine.

Other days, we may feel more spirited, like we can swoop and soar on the breeze, like a vivacious swallow.

Sparrows & Swallows, a set of cowls to mix and match, was designed with options in mind. Pairing a neutral with a brighter pop of color allows you to match your mood….or wear them both when you simply can’t decide.

Two complimentary textures play nicely together, are fun to knit, and the color combination possibilities are endless.

Knit in crisp linen, they can be worn year round, but they would be equally lovely in wool for cooler months.

Yarn/Materials:
Stockinette-Eyelet Cowl:
1 skein of Quince & Co Sparrow (100% linen; 168 yards / 154 meters per 50 grams / 1.76 ounces), shown in Eleuthera.
US #4 / 3.5mm needles, or size needed to obtain gauge

Openwork-Eyelet Cowl:
1 skein of Quince & Co Sparrow (100% linen; 168 yards / 154 meters per 50 grams 1.76 ounces), shown in Sans.
US #3 / 3.25mm needles, or one size smaller than gauge needles

Both cowls are worked from side to side, flat, and grafted for finishing.
