Kira K Designs is a line of original knitting and crochet patterns with a streamlined and eminently wearable aesthetic. Research on historical clothing, which Kira did during her former career as a theatrical costume designer, is a strong influence on her design sense, and many patterns reference styles from the 1920s through the 1960s. Kira's family history of Danish Modern furniture design is also an important influence on her patterns, resulting in garments and accessories with clean lines and intriguing details that are both interesting to make and easy to wear.

This cowl is luxuriously soft and warm, with wavy ridges adding interest to the basic tubular shape. It's a great introduction to chart reading as well as increasing and decreasing in crochet and takes only a couple hours to make! The yardage required is minimal, so this is a great pattern for luxury yarn.
