Designed specifically for the Outlander Kal/Cal using yarn from Shannah Harding of Honey Girl Farms in one of her Outlander inspired colorways.

When you think of Scotland, you think of Thistles. This cowl is reminiscent of a field of thistles, utilizing puff stitches on the top half to represent the thistle heads, and a “thatched look” half double crochet for the bottom half to represent the stems

I design all my patterns for use with fine wool or animal fiber because blocking is always an important part of the design. You can use a synthetic, but fair warning, without blocking, the bottom “thatched” half will appear tighter than the top half.

EDIT there will be 9 stitches on the hook for the puff stitch, not the 8 previously indicted.
