"Morgentau" is German for morning dew. The idea for the Morgentau Cowl came to designer Ariane Gallizzi on an early morning walk in her home country of Switzerland. For the first 4 days of her visit, her 2-year-old son was up until the early morning hours due to jet lag! The easiest way to get him to fall asleep was to take him for a walk in the stroller. Ariane was exhausted, but the magical sparkle of dew drops she saw on the luscious flowers and bushes during these walks left a lasting impression through the fog of fatigue!
The border is knit flat and joined with a 3 needle bind off to form a circle. Then, stitches are picked up around the edge to knit the cowl in the round.
This cowl is beautiful with or without beads, but we especially like it with! That's why we've included beads in a color that coordinates with each skein.
