Intricate networks of interlacing cables adorn this cozy cap.
The crown shaping, integrated into the cable patterning, creates a round motif at the top of the hat, which reminds me of an antique maritime compass and gives the name for this piece – a pelorus is a type of compass used for marine navigation.
This design is entirely unisex, and in a darker color yarn it will make a nice men’s cap.
This cozy blanket wrap I name Turas, which means “journey” in Irish. It features a bold celtic cable in the center, worked on a reverse stockinette background. A Tubular cast-on and bind-off with deep ribbed hems and cable edging, provide a contemporary take on traditional Aran patterning.
The worsted weight yarn crisply defines the alternating panels of twisting cables and honeycomb stitch.
The NAUTICAL Accessories Collection pays homage to coastal knitting traditions and contains nine designs: five hats, perfectly suited for any harsh conditions on either sea or land, two shawls, inspired by fishermen’s wives’ clothes, a contemporary cowl with a very comfortable fit and a luxurious, oversized cabled wrap for instant comfort.
