Interpretations Vol. 7 is here! This 7th volume of the truly heartfelt collaboration between Joji Locatelli and Veera Välimäki includes six themes, six words with two designs inspired by each word, showing a personal take on each of these themes.

The year 2020 added a layer of different circumstances to the book. The photographs were taken on the same day, but on opposite corners of the world; Joji’s in Argentina by Charly Barros and Veera’s in Finland by Jonna Jolkin.

Born during a night of boredom, and of the desire to just feel the rhythm of the stitches in my hands, this cowl is both easy to make and easy to wear. It’s designed to resemble a triangular shawl wrapped around your neck… but it’s not. Just slip it over your head and you are ready to go.
Designed for 2 skeins of DK-weight yarn, the cowl is worked from the top down. It features a blurry chevron texture on top, stripes in the middle, and a lacy ribbing near the edge.

Yarn: 2 skeins of Merino DK by Wobble Gobble Yarn (100% Merino; 231 yds 211m / 100 g). 1 skein in Color 1 (sample shown in colorway Dogwood), or approx. 231 yds 211 m of DK weight yarn; and 1 skein in Color 2 (sample shown in colorway Rust), or approx. 231 yds 211 m of DK weight yarn.
Needles: US 6 4 mm circular needles, about 24” long.
Other: Stitch markers, tapestry needle.

Circumference: 22¼“ 56 cm.
Length: 21½” 53.5 cm.

19 sts and 30 rows = 4” 10 cm on US 6 4 mm needles in Stockinette stitch.
Before you measure, please take the time to wash and block your swatch in the same manner that you will wash and block your cowl.
