The Musaica Cowl is about honoring the small details that surround us everyday. This cowl is a celebration of a single leaf on my Calathea musaica for a picture. I received a cutting of my friend’s for my birthday and though it’s struggled quite a bit, I have been amazed by its will to live, one leaf dying and two more springing up all in the span of 4 months, all while continuing to produce this magical mesmerizing pattern like the staves of a musical composition.
The pattern also features the first color work/cable chart I am hosting on @StitchFiddle (link in pattern), so it will be available for mobile knitting, easier to resize on a screen, and also you will be able to use the built-in progress tracker on Stitch Fiddle that I use when I’m designing.
This pattern is FREE and should not be sold, feel free to give copies to your friends! If you liked this pattern and would like to support my work and vision of a future with more pay-if-you-like-it patterns, contributions can be sent to one of the following:
