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