Short Description: Kallisti Cowl by The Yarniad. Kallisti (most beautiful, a title of Artemis) is a huntress-inspired shawl-cowl hybrid. Part shawl, part cowl, part semi-circle, part triangle, Kallisti begins as a flat semi-circular shawl, but is soon after joined to work in the round and its shaping is switched to form a triangle. The resulting piece is a cowl that drapes nicely around the neck and resembles a wrapped shawl with large-scale bobbles along the border. In bulky weight yarn, Kallisti knits up very quickly, and is easily adapted if you’d like more (or less) length or circumference to cover you as you aim your arrow.
