    Cloudfall - Digital Pattern

    $4.50

    Designed by Sally Oakley.

     

    Echoing the moving shadows of distant rainfall, this light, warm cowl is completely reversible.

    Two sizes to choose from, and well suited to solid or semi-solid yarns. Knitted in hand-dyed, ethical superfine Tasmanian merino, Cloudfall is economical on yardage, and loftily gorgeous to wear.

    Materials – Augustbird White Gum Wool 8ply: 1 skein for both sizes. Note that some knitters will require an extra skein for the longer version, owing to differences in knitting tension.
