Crocheted in a luxurious silk yarn, which drapes well and feels very pleasant worn next to the skin, this cowl is truly a special treat! Its smart stripe pattern in three different colors, thanks to very short rows, can be worked with a regular crochet hook - no special tools required! While the unusual construction might seem complicated at first, the pattern guides you through the process with schematics, plenty of progress photos and explanations. You will learn to crochet onto existing pieces and sew a few seams to produce a three-dimensional cowl with an always hidden wrong side. If you are one of those people for whom weaving in ends is not meditation, you can even let all of them hang on the inside!

For the mathematically inclined: The cowl is a torus (commonly known as donut shape).

Dieser Cowl ist mathematisch gesehen ein Torus - und vom Material her einfach seidenweich. Das raffinierte Streifenmuster entsteht aus einem einzigen langen Band. Die ungewöhnliche Konstruktion wird ausführlich mit vielen Stepfotos erklärt.

Der Cowl wird tunesisch gehäkelt, mit kurzen Reihen, so dass eine normale Häkelnadel dafür ausreicht.
