The pattern rights have reverted to me from the magazine Familien and I am thrilled to release this pattern in both Norwegian and English in a downloadable pdf format available from my Ravelry store. The diagonal triangles with an opening on top makes you think of Egyptian hieroglyphs depicting the pyramids with the sun above. A delightful image for a cowl to warm your neck, or accessorise your dress. Fasten it if you wish, or wear it across one shoulder. Or why not use it double? The cowl and the matching wristwarmers are knitted in a lovely soft and warm mixture of merino and cotton called Lerke from Dale Yarn with a stunning stitch definition.
