This landscape of conifers silhouetted against a fiery sunset is based on the view that I sometimes see as I drive home along the motorway. Obviously I can’t take a photograph when I’m driving, so I’ve had to knit the view instead (obviously not whilst driving!)

The cowl is knitted in-the-round using stranded knitting, and uses only one ball of ‘Head Over Heels’ sock yarn (shade: ‘Etna’) from Stylecraft, and one ball of equivalent weight black yarn. The stunning shades in this yarn will brighten up even the darkest of days.
