This classic plaid patterned cowl is a dramatic accessory option for the cooler months. Designed by Martin Storey, this cowl is knitted in the round using double-pointed needles and the Fair Isle technique and has two beautiful colourways included in the pattern. Worked in stocking stitch throughout, Bassett uses the beautiful Moordale yarn for superb stitch definition in this intricate design. The completed wrap measures 129 cm (50in) all round and is 23.5 cm (9in) deep.

A truly British yarn, Moordale combines British wool and alpaca, with a range of neutrals and on-trend brights to choose from. The complimentary shades work beautifully together in colourwork, but shine equally when used on their own for lace, cables and texture. The fine micron wool and soft-to-the-touch alpaca give this yarn a robust but tender feel perfect for any season
