Brunstane Kit

Knit the Brunstane cowl, a perfect project for beginner colourwork knitters, with this kit. Kits include the pattern and yarn, in a choice of three colourways, so you can be sure of a successful project and are beautifully packaged for gifting.


Ysolda designed the Brunstane Cowl specifically to be a good first stranded colourwork project: it’s both manageable and skill-building. The colourwork design intentionally begins by alternating colours after every stitch, so you don’t need to worry about tensioning the floats, then gradually increases to a maximum of 5 consecutive stitches in each colour. The bold, graphic design is shown in three relatively high contrast palettes, and has a clear foreground and background pattern, making it easy to tell which colour you should be using when, and which should be dominant. The pattern repeat is only eight stitches, so you can find your rhythm.

The Brunstane pattern is included in the kit, and can also be ordered separately if you prefer to substitute yarn.
