VYOMA means ‘sky’ or ‘space’ in Sanskrit/Hindi.
Knit in Sunrays Creations Kshoma, a light-weight linen yarn, the Vyoma Cowl seeks to capture the beauty of the clear blue spring skies: the cables and mesh lace suggest gentle spring breezes and the airy spring mornings and evenings.
This shawl-cowl hybrid design knits up quickly and makes for a nice feminine accessory that can be worn like a capelet or a hooded cowl.
The pattern is ideal for adventurous knitters who want to try out some lace and cables. The patterning looks delicate but is easy enough when knit in the round. The design is both written and charted.
