One Destination | Two Pattern Options
Choose which project you'd like to make, then choose your favorite colors!


Requires one hank each of 2 colors of Rylie by HiKoo
MC shown in = #145 Denim
CC shown in = #089 Sea Glass 

The charted Potamoi Cowl is made up of contrasting colors of a Greek Key, also known as Meander, pattern. Knit in the round with two colors of Rylie by HiKoo and grafted with Kitchener stitch, this cowl ends up with a double thick fabric with a subtly rippling edge.

The “Potamoi” are the Greek gods of waterways, and the Greek Key visually represents the meandering and constant motion of rivers and streams, symbolizing the eternal flow of things.

Requires 2 hanks of Rylie by HiKoo
Shown in = #085 Sea

The Scalae Cowl pattern features channels of flowing lace and stockinette stitch working together to create structure and movement. The “leaning ladders” lace pattern created looks very much like the rustic ladders seen leaning against buildings in old town Santorini or Corfu (“Scalae” means “ladder” in Ancient Greek).

This cowl knits up quickly in Rylie by HiKoo and is finished by grafting the short ends together. Grafting in lace can be intimidating, but this is a perfectly straightforward learning experience if you’ve never grafted lace before and a satisfying project for beginners and advanced knitters alike.
