Kedging Cowl, a nautical inspired knit, is available as a hand knitting kit with hand dyed yarn and knitting pattern.

Two skeins of yarn will be included, one skein is brushed alpaca/silk lace and the other skein is merino/nylon sock yarn.

The pattern will be included FREE with the kit (normally a retail value of $6.00) and will be mailed along with the yarn. You will need to purchase beads (not included in kit)

Please see my pattern listing for purchasing just the pattern!

About the pattern..
Stripes, brioche and beads are all design elements that anchor Kedging’s modern sensibilities. Using two different types of yarn, a smooth hand dyed yarn with a brushed alpaca silk, accentuates the different design elements. Beads act as miniature anchors to give weight and structure to the edging.
