Bulla Cowl

On Sale
Added to cart
The Bulla Cowl is worked in the round, beginning with a provisional cast on. The pattern is knit in a tube, and twisted, before grafting together the ends. The pattern combines plain stocking stitch with stripes and stranded colourwork motifs.

The motifs used are inspired by the decorative motifs on a Late Bronze Age Bulla, found at the Bog of Allen, in Ireland’s midlands, which is now displayed in the National Museum of Ireland, Kildare St.
You can read more about the inspiration at this blog post.

The pattern uses charted instructions for the colourwork motifs, and includes links to video tutorials on provisional cast on and grafting techniques.
