‘Shivelight’ is a beautiful cowl designed by my talented and very kind friend Claire (Claieinstitches) . It is a snuggly colour-work cowl knit with four shades of my Gotland DK (Cream, Silver, Grey and Charcoal). Claire and it has designed Shivelight to be a good stepping-stone into the world of colour-work, as well as being an enjoyable knit for the more experienced. Claire was inspired by the woods on the Black Isle and the design perfectly captures ‘lances of sunlight piercing the woodland canopy and the shadows cast on the woodland floor’. Quote from the beautiful poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins:
‘……Down roughcast, down dazzling whitewash,
wherever an elm arches, Shivelights & shadowtackle
Suggested needles: 4mm

A stranded colour work cowl, knit in the round – a good pattern for knitters new to stranded colour work, or a quick straight forward knit for knitters experienced in the technique.
