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.

Explore serious texture with this lovely and intricate cowl. Traveling stitches and cables create a rich surface design over a purl background, and the stitch is given in both written and charted formats. Choose a solid color yarn to show off the stitch pattern to the best effect. The Interlaced Mitts make this a great set, and perfectly use the rest of the skein of yarn.
