Get yarn and pattern in one easy kit.

Each kit contains enough yarn to make one cowl and a digital download pattern. The code and link for the pattern are on the back of the ball band. You will receive the patterns for both the stocking stitch and moss stitch versions of the cowl.

Two simple cowls worked in the round. Easy enough for a first-timer, this pattern marries a basic cowl pattern with lots of mini-skein striping for added fun. The ends from the stripes are worked in as-you-go, to avoid having to weave them all in at the end. The rainbow colours are worked with a strand of 4ply BFL to produce a beautiful fabric that works up quickly.

Yarn in the kit

50g / 200m of 4ply 100% BFL - this is the main colour.

25g / 210m of Moonbroch - this is split into equal amounts of 8 colours.

100% superwash Blue Faced Leicester wool is made with fleece from UK flocks which was processed and spun in Yorkshire. The wool has been superwash treated so it can be machine washed on a wool cycle - however you can't do this if it's combined with the Moonbroch yarn which needs more gentle treatment.

Moonbroch is 72% kid mohair, 28% silk hand dyed yarn. Moonbroch is a luxury kid mohair and silk lace weight yarn with a fluffy haze.A moonbroch is a halo round the moon and it's a perfect description for the glorious mohair haze offered by this yarn.Indie dyed in our Yorkshire studio. This fluffy blend of kid mohair and silk yarn is a laceweight yarn. It works well on it's own and also combines beautifully with other yarns where it offers a soft haze of colour. Our kid mohair and silk yarn comes from South Africa.

Care for these yarn by hand washing with a mild detergent and drying flat.

Each kit contains the Main Colour and eight Contrast Colours. There are equal amounts of the Contrast Colours, so you can use them in whatever order you would like. Each kit contains enough yarn to make one of the 2 cowls plus a margin of 10%
