When the fine folks at Polka Dot Sheep asked me to
design a pattern for their Knit & Nosh subscription
boxes, I couldn’t resist! I adore their buttery soft
The Yaak yarn, and this skein has a comforting
earthy glow that reminds me of curling up with a
warm bowl of soup.

The cowl is worked side to side, like a short scarf
that is sewn together on the cast on / bind off
edges. The fringe is created by dropping the first 3
stitches in the bind off row.

Sized as S (M, L), with a ~ 19¼ (20¾, 22½)”/ 49
(52.5, 57) cm circumference on the top edge and ~
9”/ 23 cm deep, including the fringe.
