This listing is for a paper copy of my Peacock Cowl knitting pattern. Digital versions are available on Ravelry and LoveCrafts.
Put your best colours on display with this three colour Peacock Cowl. Inspired by At Birkhill House’s resident peafowl pair, Herman & Marguerite, the pattern is suitable for a variety of yarn weights and sample details are included for working with 4ply and DK. Worked in the round, with a combination of written and charted instructions, the completed cowl is fully reversible, with the working side of your knit completely hidden for a clean finish.
At Birkhill House is an animal assisted activity/therapy venture in the Scottish Borders, which also offers an array of modern and traditional crafting opportunities. Want to learn more? Check them out here: https://atbirkhillhouse.co.uk
The cowl is made up of three simple elements, which can be worked in any order or repeated as many times as you like. I have included instructions for working the pattern as shown in the samples. Change it up if you like, to add more or less of any element, keeping in mind that yardages will vary if you do.
