Apricate Cowl Kit by Kyle Kunnecke

Apricate [AP-ri-kayt] (verb): To bask in the sun. This fun word comes from the latin word apricus, meaning exposed to the sun. 

Rays of angled lines encircle this kerchief cowl. Worked in the round, this fun knit combines stranded knitting with knit/purl stitches to create an intriguing, textured motif. After the initial section is completed in the round, we transition to working flat and begin decreasing each row to reach the final point of the cowl. An adventure of applied i-cord completes this interesting, meditative knit.
