Yarn Kit – Agnes Cowl by Aleks Byrd

Availability : In stock
Hand Dyed
Naturally Dyed

A gorgeous little project to keep your neck warm and cosy on colder days.

The Agnes cowl features multiple stitch patterns creating stripes using seed stitch, Kihnu vits knitted braids and Roosimine inlay knitting. The Roosimine is worked repeatedly all the way around each round.

This is a great project for Roosimine beginners and those curious to try using this technique in a slightly different way.
Video tutorial links are included in the pattern for instructions how to work the different Estonian knitting techniques.

Instructions are for one size, however extra length can easily be achieved by repeating the pattern additional times.

Why not pair the Agnes Cowl, with another of Aleks' lovely Roosimine designs – the Hilja Mitts.

In the original yarn for this design, G-uld No.4, we have created 9 beautiful colour combos especially curated for you by us here at Knit with attitude, a 100g hank in the Main Colour and 2 contrasting colours in Minis of 25g each. The kits can be bought with or without the pattern, if included this will be provided for you digitally.

In addition you will need US 3 / 3.25 mm –16” / 40 cm circular needle or double pointed needles (DPNs for working small circumference for working seed stitch. US 4 / 3.5 mm – 2 sets of 16” / 40 cm circular needle or double pointed needles (DPNs) for working small circumference for braids and Roosimine. Stitch markers, crochet hook and darning needle.
