Quince & Co Chisling - PDF


Designed by 
Melanie Rice

Add a healthy dose of texture to your wardrobe with Melanie’s Chisling cowl. Knit with our soft and springy Chickadee, we love this piece for its highly textured cables, formed with unusual, elongated stitches. Worked entirely in the round, with two options each for height and circumference, Chisling is perfect for wearing long or doubled up for a cozier fit. Knitters of all skill levels will delight in this meditative yet compelling knit.

The model in Camel is wearing Klem by Jill Thompson Beach and the model in Coldspring is wearing Channel by Pam Allen.
