Thrive cowl was inspired by growing things and is meant to symbolise the tenacity of life. It represents plant life that is rooted deep in the earth and grows upward to the sky. I also wanted to encapsulate the feeling of safety and warmth of being surrounded by greenery - that sense of being sheltered and nurtured that you get in a forest.
Thrive cowl is worked from the bottom-up (or top-down! you can wear it either way up!) and in the round. I have included a full chart and written instructions.

These codes will work for any pattern in my store!
12”/30cm wide (24”/60cm circumference)
Any DK yarn, any colour. A solid/semi-solid is best to highlight the textured cable pattern.
Your yarn should ideally have some spring (a nylon and/or merino blend would work well) and not be too fuzzy or have too much drape.
