A knitting pattern for a lightweight hat and cowl with a stranded colourwork motif inspired by vines of ivy leaves. ‘Hedera’ is the Latin name for ivy.

The hat and cowl are both worked in the round from the bottom up, and begin with corrugated ribbing. A band of stranded colourwork is followed by St st in the main colour. The hat is then decreased for the crown. The cowl has another band of colourwork, and finishes with more corrugated ribbing.

This set is perfect for some cosy Christmas knitting, whether for yourself or as a gift. There is a kit including yarn and the pattern available here.
