Rionnag Cowl Knitting Pattern PDF Download
Rionnag (’star’ in Gaelic) is a lovely lightweight cowl featuring classic Shetland colorwork motifs. Perfect for cooler Spring days, or tuck it into a coat for those colder days. Worked in four colors with only two colors used per row, this would make a great project if you’re looking to try allover colorwork.
