Fiona Alice’s latest design for Loop, “Tuli,” was inspired by a bonfire celebration of the Finnish summer solstice. Translated from the Finnish language, the name means “fire”- paying homage to the classic Fireflowers pattern which has been modified here. There are multiple combinations of garter and slipped stitches used throughout this design. The construction allows “Tuli” to be completely reversible: with a simple flip of the cowl, there is a brand new texture to show off!

Please note that this is a PDF pattern. If you would like the printed version that is mailed to you please see Loop’s shop page.

Loop is also offering Tuli Kits through their shop page!

MC: Tea Smoked; 1 skein
Note: The sample shown used 92g of MC so it is important to check you tension and adjust the needle size as necessary. If you find you’re running short of yarn towards the end of the pattern you can end a row earlier.

25 sts and 52 rows to 10cm (4in) over Fireflowers pattern on 3mm needles after blocking.
24 sts and 56 rows to 10 cm (4 in) over garter stitch on 3mm needles after blocking.
Take time to check your tension and adjust the needle size accordingly to ensure an accurate finish.

The cowl is worked in the round and on completion is folded in half by bringing one end inside the other before grafting together; this creates a double-layered and double-sided cowl that has an incredibly cosy finish.
Tuli uses nearly all of the suggested yarns listed above so it is important to check your tension.
The shade used in the pattern rounds is indicated after the round number; eg. Round 1 (CC1) means work round 1 in contrast colour 1, Round 3 (MC) means work round 3 in Main Colour. If a shade is not given then work in MC. There is no need to break MC when you join a CC – just carry the yarn loosely up the inside.
The stitch count fluctuates when working rounds 1-5 and 13-17 of the Fireflowers Pattern.
