Roseroot Cowl


Roseroot Flowers cover shot

On the barren, limestone landscape of Burnt Cape Ecological reserve, the vegetation thrives an inch or two off the pebbles. The more than 300 varieties of arctic plants provide a colourful carpet during June and July, transforming the desolate grey landscape with their vibrant blooms. One of these is Roseroot (Rhodiola rosea), the inspiration for this cowl.

Written to be worked on circular needles in the round, this cowl can easily be customized by adding/removing stitch repeats while the height can be adjusted by working additional rounds. Each repeat of Chart A’s 16 stitch/12 row pattern adds 2.125”/5.40 cm in width and 1”/2.54 cm in height.

Individual Pattern Price: $5.00
