Garabato Cowl Knitting Pattern
A stunning mohair silk cowl with an unusual and beautiful stitch pattern. This light and delicate cowl will definitely become a firm favourite. It measures 38 cm x 140 cm/15” x 55”, so big enough to wrap around twice, but uses less than 50g of yarn, making this super quick to knit – perfect for gifting!
“Garabato” is Spanish for a squiggle or a scribble. I love the way the bright rainbow colours show up as squiggles in this beautiful pale green yarn, making even the basic garter stitch sections look stunning.
