In Madeira Island, the vines are cultivated in small terraces called poios, to make their very famous wine. I was inspired by their beautiful geometric pattern to make this cowl. Knitted in warm DK wool, it will bring you comfort and a ray of Madeira’s sunshine all winter. Knitted in the round, it starts and ends with backloop ribs and feature portions of seed stitch and garter stitch framed by stitches knitted through back loop.
