The Talvine (Estonian for Wintery) cowl is a warm and squishy winter accessory, inspired by traditional Nordic motifs. Instead of stranded colourwork, the cowl is worked in mosaic knitting technique carrying just one strand of the yarn at a time. The sample is long enough to be worn as a snood/hood if needed.

The cowl is knitted in rounds. The width and length can be easily adjusted, working more or fewer repeats/motifs. The sample is ten repeats wide and six repeats high.
The pattern uses metric and imperial systems.
The mosaic pattern is charted and written.
The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted.

The yarns used for the sample:
• MC Madelinetosh Pashmina, colourway Mars Rover; 283 m / 310 yards.
• CC Madelinetosh Pashmina, colourway Oscuro; 260 m / 285 yards.

One motif: 7.25 x 7.25 cm / 2⅞ x 2⅞”

Measurements of the sample:
Circumference 72 cm / 28¼”
Height (with ribbings) 47 cm / 18½”

25 stitches x 50 rnds = 10 x 10 cm / 4”x 4” in mosaic pattern after blocking
The gauge is not important for this project but will affect the size of the cowl and the amount of yarn needed.
