Maresme is a set of cowl and mitts with the same stitch pattern but relying on different gauges and textures to make it fun and exciting!

The cowl is a big tube, easy to customize (instructions included!), with garter and reverse stockinette to make the cable texture POP!.

The mitts are worked in the round, with garter and stockinette, which offsets the cable pattern to be a flatter side-detail. They’re constructed from the top down (yes!!!) so they allow you to use EVERY yard in the skein!

Skills required: Knit, Purl, Work in the round, Cables (easy), Increases (m1), Decreases (ssk, k2tog), Bind Off.

Features: Full Abbreviation List. Charts & Written translations. Full Schematic with measurements for blocking.
