Tulpa by LaVisch Designs | The Tulpa cowl was inspired by the hand spun yarn the cowl pictured is made in. It can, of course, also be worked in another fingering or light fingering weight yarn. Whatever you choose: This is bound to be an entertaining knit with a stunning result! This pattern contains instructions for 3 sizes. The Tulpa cowl is seamless and knitted in the round. The instructions for the patterning are provided both charted and written out.

Gauge: Tulpa is written for a gauge of 18.5 sts / 32.2 rounds = 10 cm (4 inches) over pattern after washing and gentle blocking

Finished Measurements: Size S (M, L): 70.5 (84.5, 98.5) cm / 27 ¾ (33 ¼, 38 ¾) inches circumference and 38.5 cm / 15 ¼ inches high. The sample shown is in size M. The size can further be adjusted by changing the number of cast-on stitches to any multiple of 26.

Materials Used: 316 (375, 440) m (346 (411, 481) yds) / 59 (70, 82) g 2-ply hand spun yarn [50% wool, 50% silk; 531 m (581 yds) / 99 g], with a WPI of 15. Substitute any fingering or light fingering weight wool/silk blend gradient yarn for a similar result

Needle Size: For the sample cowl in size M, a 4 mm (US 6) circular needle was used, 60 cm (24 inches) length suggested. Choose a needle size to match gauge and a length appropriate for the chosen size.
