Notes

Yarn kit with Norwegian pattern will be launched in August at Oslo Design Fair.

English pattern will be test knitted beginning on 9th of September before the pattern is released here on Ravelry.


Stranded colorwork cowl with purl stitches and garter stitch stripes in three contrasting colors in both Hillesvåg Ullvarefabrikk Vilje Lamull and Sølje Pelsull. The large cowl is folded down so it stands up with the stranded colorwork pattern showing on both sides and is named after the Celtic protectress in peace. The cowl is worked in the round for ease as a tube and then grafted together. Wear the cowl on its own or together with the Macha Jacket.
