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

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.
