Naples Collar & Cowl
Naples Collar & Cowl
In Naples Collar & Cowl each yarn reveals the stitch pattern in its own way, so I’ve done this for multiple gauges and types of yarn.
Named for the Italian city of Naples, a city of many faces, it well suits a project that can be worked in a variety of gauges and in two different structures.
The Collars, worked flat, are done in a Bulky Merino Ribbon, a unique ladder tape; Civility Worsted 3-ply Merino-Silk blend; Ava 3-ply Sport blends Merino-Cashmere-Nylon.
The Cowls, which combines flat and ITR, looks luxurious in Bulky Luft a lofty Merino-Pima Cotton blend; It Could Be Worsted makes it drapey and fluid; Pippin shows off its Merino-NEP in DK.
Naples is perfect for gift giving and for expanding your own wardrobe with fabric results that vary with the fiber content of each yarn yarn. Naples is an interesting, but not difficult, carry-around knitting project in a stitch pattern is incredibly versatile. The pattern includes button-creation instructions for each Cowl or Collar.
