Of the Woodwrae Cowl Lucy says:

Key patterns (angular spirals) are a prominent feature in Pictish and Celtic art. This cowl features an all-over repeating key pattern, ideal as an introduction to Celtic-style cable knitting.” To see more of Lucy’s work do visit her site https://www.lucyhague.co.uk/.
