Ita Cowl

| /

Ita is a colourwork cowl, knitted in a tube, then twisted and joined at the ends to create a Mobius loop. Inspired by resist-dyeing techniques, Ita reinterprets these geometric patterns into knitted form by combining stranded knitting with two differently textured yarns: Tov DK and Flette by Woolfolk. The bumpy texture of Flette creates stitches that emulate the organic marks of the tie-dye-inspired colourwork pattern.
