Curio Cowl


This double thick infinity cowl was designed specifically to have fun with combining lots of colours. Sometimes it’s too hard to choose just one! Solid colours are most effective to showcase the stitch.

This cowl is knit in the round with a classic linen stitch which creates a simple, elegant fabric. Curio is a very meditative and rhythmic project while the striping adds some interest.

This cowl is knit in one piece with a sport weight yarn in six colours. The ends are grafted together. This cowl has one size and a slightly visible seam.
