Linoleum Cowl

Issue: Issue 73

Linoleum Cowl by Tracey Todhunter
Find the pattern in issue 73 Inside Crochet magazine.

Sometimes the inspiration for a design comes from the most unusual places: the colours of this cowl were inspired by an old linoleum floor in vivid grey and orange.

● Eden Cottage Yarns Milburn 4ply, 85% wool/15% silk, 50g/200m/218yds
Yarn A: Harvest Gold x 1 skein
Yarn B: Steel x 1 skein
● Eden Cottage Yarns Askham 4ply, 70% alpaca/30% silk, 50g/200m/218yds
Yarn C: Crocosmia x 1 ball
● 2.75mm hook

You can use any 4ply weight silk blend yarn to achieve a similar effect – the silk is important to achieve a nice drape in the fabric. Yarns without silk can be used but will result in a stiffer fabric.

Finished circumference: 66cm/26in.
Finished depth: 17.5cm/7in.
