The Tenement Cowl was designed by Fay Dashper-Hughes who was inspired by the bright contrast colours and brick bond pattern of Victorian tiles.
Tiles were laid in communal stairwells of tenement buildings in cities such as Glasgow in Scotland. The patterns often had stripes of contrast colours and helped to brighten up the otherwise dreary flights of stairs.
The cowl is worked flat in rows, and sewn together after blocking to create a cowl. Yarns are carried up the side, so there are only four ends to weave in. Instructions are written using UK crochet terms.
