Willa is inspired by my spirited, precocious pup. At just over 3 years old, Willa is a true spitfire with boundless energy, runs like a straight shot, and loves with an intense loyalty.

The gorgeous brown of natural yarn dyer Wool & Palette’s Umber colorway is a perfect match for Willa’s chocolatey fur, and the bold, bright red ombré of the Pinot Noir, Candy Apple, and Crab Apple colorways plays beautifully with the sun ray, chevron, and shepherd ear inspired colorwork motifs.

Willa is a tube möbius cowl, starting with a provisional cast on, then knit in the round. Twist the tube once, then seam the ends together using kitchener stitch, creating an infinity loop that is cozy and warm!
