Cranberry Swirl


A circular capelet, knit in the colours of cranberry fields in autumn, highlights the swirling features of a self-striping yarn.

Worked from the top down, it can be knit until you run out of yarn. No need to worry about whether you will have enough yarn. Simply add increases in ever-widening sequences as you work downwards.

The sample pictured is knit with Zitron's Unisono, 100% new wool, (300 m./328 yds. per 100 g. skein), colour no. 1280, size Medium.
