Coddle is a big bear hug of a cowl! Knit in Quince & Co’s Lark, it’s the perfect accessory to snuggle into for Autumn/Winter.

Coddle’s interesting construction keep this project just challenging enough not to get boring while its easy to memorise flowing twisted cables make for an enjoyable and relaxed knit.

Coddle begins with the centre cable that is knit flat in one long strip then grafted together to make a cabled loop. Stitches are then picked up on either side of the centre cable and knitted outwards in the round to create ribbons of stitches flowing away from the centre. Coddle features both written and charted instructions.
