// M O K U M • KAL // Which colour combo are you most drawn to? Snag your kit here for the Knit a Long that starts September 13th 2019! Mokum is a cowl that Mieka John (Salt & Stone Knits), designed as part of the Urth Yarns ‘Knitters of the World’ program and it’s inspired by the city she now calls home; Amsterdam. Mokum is a quick knit of just two colours in worsted weight. Named after the city’s nickname, “Mokum”, a Yiddish word that means “place” or “safe haven”, this cowl is inspired by everyday life in Amsterdam. The rhythmic geometric motifs are pulled from patterns found around the city from the canals to the lively walls of Amsterdam Centraal. You don’t even need to leave your bike to catch a glimpse of the striking lines marking the speed bumps along your way. The Mokum Cowl sits cozily next to your face and is designed with double stranded colour work to block out the unforgiving wind on that chilly bike ride home.

ABOUT THE YARN
Urth Yarns Harvest Worsted is a 100% extra fine superwash merino, with 200m (225 yds) per 100 gram skein. Needle: 4-5 mm (US 6-8)
The yarn is hand dyed with roots, fruits and nuts. The result is a super squishy merino collection of earthy colours. Please note that colours are sometimes subject to subtle variation as each Harvest is different.
ABOUT THE PATTERN
Mokum is knit in the round from the bottom up beginning with a Crochet Provisional Cast-on. A folded hem is created with the cast on stitches and the cowl continues in charted colour work. For a top edge that mirrors the folded hem, stitches are picked up on the wrong side of the work and Kitchener Stitch is used to graft the two rows together, binding off all stitches.
