Inishturk Cowl by Erineen Designs | The Inishturk Cowl is named for a small island off the west coast of Mayo in Ireland. The cables in this cowl meander upwards like the rocks and the paths on this beautiful island, that rises boldly from the wild Atlantic, in wall-like cliffs to the northwest and steep hills to the north. Much thought was put into making this cowl a relaxing experience for you. Mosaic charts are offered in both light on dark and dark on light so that you don’t have to try and switch them in your head. And the cables are created without a cable needle. This mosaic cowl is a fast and engaging knit, that you will not be able to put down. You will be saying, ‘just one more row’. Designed in two colors, this fingering weight cowl uses only 120 yards of each color, which means you can make more than one cowl from two contrasting skeins of yarn. It’s easy enough for a confident beginner knitter but engaging enough for an advanced one. It’s a quick stash-busting project available in one size.
