  • Product Description

    (’ish-ma-îªl). noun [usu. as object]

    is a cashmere snood, inspired by the classic nautical chain link. Although knit in worsted weight yarn, the resulting cabled texture has a luxuriously thick & chunky look. We’re betting that Ishmael wished he had one of these to keep him warm during his time on the Pequod!

    ORIGIN  New York City, pattern written by the Jones & Vandermeer design team.

    EXPERIENCE LEVEL   easy to intermediate (mostly knits and purls with a single cable cross in the pattern repeat that is a bit more complicated than the basic twist).

    SIZE  22" circumference by 14" long.


    - Qualità Cashmere: 2 skeins; shown in Seaweed Green.

    - US10 (6.0mm) 16" long circulars

    - Cable needle, crochet hook to weave in end,  darning needle to bind-off, stitch marker
