Inspired by the textiles of the Italian Renaissance, the Firenze Cowl is a reversible, double-layer cowl in stranded colourwork. It uses an an original colourwork chart representing seaweed and waves, and a variation on a traditional colourwork pattern for the vines. The Firenze cowl is worked in the round from a provisional cast on, which is grafted to the end stitches in finishing. A matching mitten pattern is also available; both patterns can be made with 1x50g and 1x20g of each colour of the recommended yarn.
