Loop - Tuli Cowl Pattern
Please note that this is a printed pattern and will be posted to you. If you would like the PDF version that is emailed to you please see Fiona's page on Ravelry .
Fiona Alice’s latest design for Loop, “Tuli,” was inspired by a bonfire celebration of the Finnish summer solstice. Translated from the Finnish language, the name means “fire”-paying homage to the classic Fireflowers pattern which has been modified here. There are multiple combinations of garter and slipped stitches used throughout this design. The construction allows “Tuli” to be completely reversible: with a simple flip of the cowl, there is a brand new texture to show off!
