Calan Mai - PDF
Calan Mai is inspired by a scene from one of my favorite books, A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas, and Once Upon A Corgi’s beautiful yarns.
This textured cowl is knit in the round, holding a strand of fingering and lace mohair yarns double.
Beads also add a subtle, elegant sparkle, but these can be omitted if you choose. Simple knit and purl, double increase and decrease stitches make this an incredibly relaxing and intuitive project.
I hope you enjoy!
