Finly Cowl - PDF Knitting Pattern


The Story

I have the great honor of having a colorway named after me - the SoCalMeaghan Special by Black Market Wool. So when I started to plan what to make with it I knew it had to be something that was very me but also very special since there’s cashmere in this blend.

As a shark super-fan it only seemed appropriate to design something that incorporated something that was “sharky”. I think the shapes in this cowl look like shark fins - and thus the Finly Cowl was born (or perhaps hatched, as might be more appropriate).
