Notes Don’t be afraid if you’ve never knitted with more than 2 colors at a time. When the cat heads come to light, you’ll realise it’s not more complicated. Just keep your skeins organized, be careful to carry your strands loosely inside your work and to maintain a consistent tension. I advise you to make a large swatch of a few cat heads before getting started.

Inspired by Iceland’s North Atlantic landscapes, the Seascape Cowl is a modern twist on granny chic. Crocheted in three colors of Ístex Álafoss Létt Lopi, the cowl is constructed from solid granny squares joined on the diagonal and edged in back-loop double crochet ripples. Worn with a tailored coat or an oversized cardigan, it‘s a subtle statement piece that can take you from fall all the way through spring. It’s a great project for crocheters who enjoy the challenge of mixing techniques for interesting results.
