Product description

The double thickness of stranded Shelter makes this toasty neckwarmer proof against spring winds. Morse incorporates traditional Scandinavian motifs in shifting scales, and decreases placed on single-color rounds form a funnel shape for a cozy, anatomical fit. Our sample was knit in two colors for a simple graphic effect, but changing colors with each band could put your scraps to good use and create a nuanced or boldly playful accessory.

  • Pattern materials

    YARDAGE

    • 250 yards of Color 1 (C1) and 140 yards of Color 2 (C2) of worsted weight wool yarn


    YARN

    Brooklyn Tweed Shelter (100% American Targhee-Columbia wool; 140 yards/50 grams)

    • 2 skeins of Color 1 (C1) and 1 skein of Color2 (C2)
    • Photographed in colors Woodsmoke (C1) and Cast Iron (C2)

    CONSTRUCTION

    • The cowl is worked circularly from the bottom up.


    GAUGE

    • 18 stitches & 21 rounds = 4″ in chart patterns with Size A/Size B needle, after blocking


    NEEDLES

    Size A (for Single-Color Rounds of Stockinette Stitch)

    • One 24″ circular needle in size needed to obtain gauge listed
    • Suggested Size: 5 mm (US 8)


    Size B (for Two-Color Rounds of Chart Patterns)

    • One 24″ circular needle, one size larger than Size A
    • Suggested Size: 5½ mm (US 9)


    Due to significant variance among knitters, your colorwork fabric should be swatched and wet-blocked prior to knitting your sweater to determine whether or not needle Size B should be larger, smaller or equal to Size A. Please read about Speed-Swatching for Circular Knitting (see Special Techniques).


    Size C (for Ribbing)

    • One 24″ circular needle, three sizes smaller than Size A
    • Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US 5)



    Size D (optional; for Tubular Cast On and Bind Off only)

    • One 24″ circular needle, one size smaller than Size C
    • Suggested Size: 3½ mm (US 4)


    Note: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. You may wish to test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.


    FINISHED DIMENSIONS

    • 32″ [81.5 cm] circumference at bottom; 24″ [61 cm] circumference at top; 16″ [40.5 cm] length
