Part of the comforting cowls collection - for a limited time you can purchase the collection at a discounted price of 3 euros (the usual price for 1 pattern). You will get 2 patterns now - the 3rd will be sent as an update when it’s released.


I made this as a comforting thing to knit during lockdown.

Once it was done it reminded me of photos of everyone waving from their windows during the COVID crisis - even after the crisis is over that can be a positive message/image.

The pattern has both written instructions and a chart so you choose how you like to work.

And yes in case you can’t quite believe it, the colourwork is made with slipped stitches, so you are only working with one yarn per round which makes it extra soothing and satisfying - lovely colourwork but no stranding !!!

Allow approx. 200m/220yds of the MC (solid or semi-solid) and 100m/110yds of the CC (striping or variegated)
