Ag Sugradh sa Sneachta

The many faces of the superhero scientist modeling Ag Sugradh sa Sneachta Cowl, just released! Buy Now!

This is a stranded colour work cowl featuring puppies frolicking in the snow. Ag Sugradh sa Sneachta translates as playing in the snow.

The cowl is available in three sizes, but easily adaptable to alternative sizes. The sizes are 53 cm, 60, and 67 cm in circumference. It is knit in the round from the bottom up with a garter stitch border. The stranded colour work uses just two colours per row.
The sample, shown here in medium, is knit with Debbie Bliss Fine Donegal fingering weight yarn in colour ways Snowdrift and Teal. The cowl used less than half a ball of each colour in the medium size. The yarn is spun in Co. Donegal and has the distinctive tweedy appearance of many Irish yarns. The added cashmere makes it soft enough to wear next to your skin too!

Another cowl using an old Shale lace pattern. However this was not designed or knit with Irish yarn. Instead, I used a super-chunky pure wool in contrasting olive and leaf from Colinette. This is a beautiful soft texture wool, made in Wales, just across St. George’s Channel. Get free pattern glas here! Knit on 12 mm needles in Point 5 super-chunky yarn, this cowl quickly knits up into a stripy old shale lace pattern. It is knit flat and the sides are seamed together at the end
