Year of Gifts: Shamrock Cowl

The Shamrock Cowl by Courtney Kelley knit in Kelbourne Woolens Lucky Tweed in pine green pictured on an astroturn ground surrounded by blocks, crayons, buttons, pinks, pencils, and paintbrushes neatly arranged in a "knolling" fashion

I’m not sure if its the stress that is getting to me, but I’m hoping there is some sort of omen that we’re releasing a cowl in Lucky Tweed called Shamrock on St. Patrick’s day. (We try to steer clear of cliches around here, but I’m full on embracing any luck I can get these days!)

The Shamrock Cowl is worked in the round from the bottom up. Designed with two sizes, you may either work a close fitting cowl perfect for staving off the winter chill, or a wider one that makes for a functional and cute accessory! As a bonus, the cowl is reversible and you can show it with the cables more subtle, and “inside out” with the knit columns popping – whichever side you prefer!

As with all Kelbourne Woolens patterns, special techniques are linked in the pattern to detailed and clear tutorials on our website. The Shamrock Cowl PDF includes links to:
• Working from charts
• Measuring gauge in cable pattern

As with the other Year of Gifts patterns, we’ve assembled kits for the Shamrock Cowl, which include:

• 1 skein of Lucky Tweed in pine
• Custom printed gridded notebook
• 3 pencils
• Cable needles in 3 sizes
• “kelbourne woolens” logo sticker
• Postcard with individual pattern download code.
