Vineyard Cowl and Beanie Kit
Not quite a cable, not really lace, this pretty little twisted eyelet stitch pattern by Churchmouse Yarns lends itself nicely to knitting in the round. The softly draping cowl tapers a wee bit to keep it closer to the neck. The matching beanie is knit a little tighter for a stretchier fit. Cleverly mitered crown shaping resolves the stitch pattern beautifully.
Our kit includes the pattern and yarn to complete both the cowl or the beanie.
