Harmonia's Rings Moebius Cowl with Sivia Harding
The Harmonia's Rings Cowl, which uses Cat Bordhi's Moebius cast on to achieve the mysterious spiral neck shape, features an easy but addictive self-pleating knit and purl stitch pattern that creates concentric rings reminiscent of ancient architecture. This cowl sits cape-like over the shoulders and is suitable for a wide range of body types.
Class includes many techniques: the Moebius cast on, beaded picot bind off, knitting texture patterns in the round, shaping within the Moebius structure, and ways to customize the pattern to fit any body type. A sweater based on the cowl is also shown.
