Top down cowlette is started flat and first knit like a triangular shawl, then joined in the round in the classic cowlette shape. Quick to knit up, this easy to wear little gem that won’t slide off your shoulders adds just the right touch of elegance to any wardrobe!

Schaumkronen (lit. Crowns of foam) are what is commonly known as whitecaps or white foam crests, this happens at a strong breeze or at about a windspeed of 6 on the Beaufort scale.[/x_text][x_line][/x_column][x_column bg_color=”” type=”2/3″ style=”padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px; “][x_text]Riversong

When storm clouds roll towards the shore
and seagulls’ cries, loud just before
get drowned out in the thundering sound
of waves that wash up and then pound,
up on the rocks, with shore in sight,
my waves are crowned in caps of white!

Worked in one piece, the sole is knit back and forth and is HEAVILY thrummed to give extra cushioning. The sides are worked in the round and the instep is again worked back and forth with a few shortened rows to bring the back of the slipper up and leave the front lower for easy in and out!
And in case you are wondering, ‘Fingge’ simply means slippers in Swissgerman, my native tongue.
