(6) Name: 'Knitting : Weinstock

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit

Pattern Description:

Weinstock, Ger. grapevine, whose name so chosen as the yarn color reflects the withering grapevines prevalent in both our old home of Naples, Italy and present home of Stuttgart, Germany. The woven texture, achieved by slipped stitches, further represents the twisting of grapevines.

This cowl pattern is ideal for highlighting hand-dyed, variegated and handspun yarns.
