Fána (FAWN-ah, the Irish for downward slope) is a cowl worked in the round. It features an allover travelling slipped stitch pattern over a background of two-colour garter stitch stripes.
The pattern begins with a garter stitch border, worked in the round in the contrast colour. Once the main colour is introduced, all knit rounds are worked in MC, and purl rounds worked in CC.
Only one colour is worked per round; the motif stitches are slipped when working the contrast colour.

The pattern includes written and charted instructions for the travelling stitch motif.
