The Fission Knitting Tutorials show you how to work the most common stitches to help you get started with this new technique.  This pattern is part of the Secret Garden e-book.

I am an introvert. I love to find quiet, beautiful places to be by myself. A morning in a lush, green garden, knitting & coffee at hand and knowing that I won’t be disturbed is the perfect environment for me to relax and think. This design with the leaves on one side and the fence on the other represents a place of calm where I can reenergize.

This fabric is worked in Fission Knitting and is completely reversible. You can wear it with either the leaf or fence side showing.

This cowl’s unusual construction creates a cozy, snug fitting accessory. It is small enough to wear indoors and will brighten up any outfit. Its bandana shaping means it fits compactly zipped into the top of your coat and stays in place. It is extremely warm as it is worn folded over for two layers of cabled insulation.

The soft drapey folds that pool around your neck are enhanced by choosing a flat construction yarn such as Miss Babs Yummy 2-ply. Colours: Hops & Plover.

Large print charts are available with your download. Video tutorials for working the most common cables in this pattern are on the Mary W Martin Knits YouTube Channel.
