Cadence Cowl

Available in the Peloton Collection ebook (£5.00)

A quick and simple infinity cowl

This cute cowl is perfect to wear when out cycling wrapped around your neck keeping you nice and snug. It can then be unwrapped once your journey is over into a stylish long cowl. Cadence means the rhythm cyclists get into when pedalling, and this cowl suits its name as it is easy to get into a rhythm of stitches and it grows quickly.

This pattern is easy to crochet and suitable for beginners. It uses three different colours of DK weight yarn and features alternating stripes of different stitches.

Cadence Cowl is part of a matching set with Handlebar Hands and Helmet Head, all inspired by the Tour de France coming to Yorkshire in 2014 and is available to download together as the Peloton Collection.
