ABOUT THE PANDICULATION COWL

pandiculation (n) – the act of stretching oneself, especially on waking.

When the first brisk air of fall hits after a long, lazy summer, I often feel like I am waking up again. Contrary to all the old stories, for me, fall is a season of new ideas and creative exploration. Working on new knits in fall is a way to stretch my brain a little after its summer vacation.

This cowl is a nod to fall mornings at the Ventura river mouth where, at low tide, you can see rivulets of water streaming between thousands of mossy boulders. It features undulating columns of eyelets and bobbles broken up by 1×1 twisted rib. This texture looks complicated, but like many of my stitch patterns, it’s really just a 10-round repeat that’s been flipped on itself to create the full 20 rounds. Once you settle into the rhythm of it, this cowl will flow like water in a delta.
