Adama Cowl Kit
Adama is a quick-to-knit shawl-cowl hybrid. Named for the Latin word for diamond (as well as, yes, the captain of Battlestar Galactica), it is shaped as a shawl, but the second half is worked in the round to create the illusion of a semi-circular shawl worn wrapped around the neck without ends to worry about tying. The majority of the cowl is done in a simple diamond lace pattern, with bands of Stockinette and Garter stitch breaking things up. Using a worsted weight wool- cashmere blend on large needles gives this cowl a cozy, rustic appearance and cuts the knitting time to practically nothing.
Espiral from The Alpaca Yarn Company is a soft, 2 ply yarn is 100% alpaca in a worsted weight. Each 100 gm skein is approximately 165 yards. The gauge is approximately 4-5 st/1″ using US #7 or 8 needles. Available in 2 colors: Pink Lemonade or Arequipa.
