Roots + Rivulets

$7.00 PDF Pattern

The cowl has a lush texture of ribbing and cables that evokes the roots and rivulets that branch, entwine, and move through the earth, representing the larger systems (water and flora) that nourish life throughout the planet. Worked in the round, there are two options for the central motif, one representing roots and the other representing rivulets.

Pattern includes both charted and written instructions.

Techniques required: knitting in the round, cables.
