This aran-weight merino wool comes in eight shades, all with 60s-in­spired names. Vickie’s used three fab hues to hook up her cosy cowl, where the off­set granny square meets rows of half tre­bles. It looks pretty groovy, right? NOTES The Cowl is worked from the cen­tre of Granny Square in rounds, then changes to work­ing in rows after Round 2. Once sewn to­gether, the Band is then worked in rounds onto the edges of the Cowl. COWL
