Spadina Avenue

Lofty, lush, and decadently soft, this generous cowl will keep you warm in the frostiest weather. Named for the bustling thoroughfare that runs through downtown Toronto, Spadina Avenue (with a long ‘i’) is worked in the round, with simple texture and subtle shaping for good coverage. The pattern instructions are written, not charted. To make Spadina Avenue, you will need to know how to knit, purl, slip stitches and work in the round. Instructions for working the M1R increases are included in the abbreviations list.
