Description:On the barren, limestone landscape of Burnt Cape Ecological reserve, the vegetation thrives an inch or two off the pebbles. The more than 300 varieties of arctic plants provide a colourful carpet during June and July, transforming the desolate grey landscape with their vibrant blooms. One of these is Roseroot (Rhodiola rosea), the inspiration for this cowl.
Written to be worked on circular needles in the round, this cowl can easily be done using dpns or magic loop. The circumference can be customized by adding/removing stitch repeats while the height can be adjusted by working additional rounds. Each repeat of Chart A’s 16 stitch/12 row pattern adds 2.125”/5.40 cm in width and 1”/2.54 cm in height.
Gauge: 28.5 sts and 42 rows to 4 inches (10 cm) over Chart A, blocked
Yardage: 645 yards/590 meters of wool or merino lace weight yarn with bounce/spring that knits up to 8 sts/inch.
