Product Details

The final pattern in a series of linen/hemp cowls, for summer wear or those seeking an alternative to animal fiber yarns. This pattern contains both written and charted instructions.

Yarn: 140 yards of DK weight, plant fibre yarn with a gauge of 5.5 sts/inch; preferably one with some hemp or linen content.

Sample: Elsebeth Lavold 'Hempathy', (153 yards/140 meters; 41% cotton, 34% hemp, 25% rayon; 1.76 oz/50grams per skein). 1 skein in 015 Burnt Orange.
