Burano Cowl

A reversible cowl in baa ram ewe Titus, inspired by the colourful Venetian island of Burano.

IMG_2437aaKnitted in the round using the ‘double-knitting’ technique to create a reversible fabric, this cowl is inspired by the colourful houses of the Venetian island of Burano, with geometric motifs based on the typical mosaic floors of the region.

The pattern is available on Ravelry here or Lovecrafts here.

I have always loved visiting Burano – it is such a feast for the eyes (and camera) with the brightly coloured houses. The colours of this pattern were inspired by a photo I took along the Fondamenta de Cao Moleca.

Sadly the original yarn has since been discontinued, but the cowl can be made using a 4-ply / fingering weight yarn in three contrasting colours.


See my double-knitting blog post for details of some of the techniques used in this cowl.
