Ultra-Deluxe Climb and Swirl Cowl

by Craig on November 10, 2012


Our first Climb and Swirl Cowl is an easy-to-knit textured cowl made with one skein of Lana Vida’s luxurious yarn, Hannah. Then we added Rowan Kidsilk Haze to the Hannah for a deluxe version.

Ultra-Deluxe Climb and Swirl Cowl

This year, we doubled the luxury with 2 skeins of Hannah and 2 balls of Kidsilk Haze for our Ultra-Deluxe Climb and Swirl. Wear it long and loose or wrapped up tight – either way you’ll feel great and look fabulous!

Here’s the pattern for the Ultra-Deluxe version:


one size – 8 inches tall, 60 inches in circumference

2 skeins Lana Vida Hannah Yarn, shown in hunter
2 balls Rowan Kidsilk Haze Yarn, shown in alhambra
32-inch circular size 11 needle or size to achieve gauge

Holding a strand of each yarn together, CO 225 sts. Join in the round, being careful not to twist.

K2, p2 until piece measures almost 14 inches. BO in pattern. Weave in ends.

For this pattern, it’s better not to mark the beg of the round. Just repeat the stitch pattern until you’re ready to bind off.

There are lots of beautiful combinations of Hannah and Kidsilk Haze. Here are a few of our favorites:

I’m still loving my finished Deluxe Climb & Swirl Cowl. The Hannah yarn was a pure dream to work with, and the pattern was simple enough that I could knit on autopilot while still giving an interesting fabric. It was the perfect project! 🙂

I’m so glad you enjoyed it Amy! I agree that it’s interesting to knit, but doesn’t require a lot of attention – great for knitting with friends. Thanks!

I don’t see this in Ravelry yet, but I’ll keep checking so I can fave it. Loving the original version – VERY quick to knit. I’m using stash Mountain Colors Rivertwist. Yummy and cushy.

I made the shorter version last year, love it and get many compliments. But I wish it was deep enough to pull up over my head. Which means I might need to make the Ultra-Deluxe version! Maybe in Bloom and ???

Blush goes beautifully with Bloom!
