Natural wool shades combine with Jill Draper’s hand dyed colour to make Quire, a geometric colourwork cowl with scrumptious texture. Pattern includes instructions for both single loop and double loop cowls, with directions for further adjusting the circumference. (Model is wearing the long/double loop size.) Colourwork stitch pattern is charted only. To make Quire, you will need to know how to knit, purl, work in the round, do stranded colourwork, and read charts.
