Bamburgh Cowl by Maddie Harvey

Exploring the contrast between two gorgeously different Whistlebare yarns, the Bamburgh Cowl features stripes, slipped stitches and simple cables to create a striking geometric pattern. Named after the wonderful Bamburgh Castle, the cowl is knitted in a sophisticated colour palette and its tessellating pattern is reminiscent of the cobbled and tiled floors found in this fairy-tale castle on the Northumberland coast.

The Bamburgh Cowl is a cosy cowl worked side to side in the round to create a double-layered accessory. Stripes, slipped stitches and cables are worked to create a gorgeously satisfying all-over pattern.  (3.25mm needles required – not included)
