A Scots word for Curlew, Whitterick is a gorgeous cowlette perfect for all seasons. Slipped stitches give a beautiful texture to the main body, before blending into a lace pattern for the border. Knit from the top down like a traditional triangular shawl, Whitterick is joined in the round just before the lace starts, turning it from shawl to cowlette.

The pattern is fully written and charted so whichever way you like to read your patterns, you’re covered! The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted. There’s a screenshot of the pattern and a list of the stitches used at the bottom of the photos.
