Alaska Cowl Kit


We’re hosting our first virtual Knit Night (via Zoom) for the Alaska Cowl on April 15th from 3-4:30 pm AKST! Anyone who would like some instruction on knitting the cowl – or who would just like some company while knitting – is encouraged to join!
You do NOT have to participate in the Zoom meeting – although we’d LOVE to see you! If you would rather just purchase the kit and knit-a-long with us in spirit, that’s great! You can also email us photos of your progress and finished cowls, or post them on social media and use the hashtag #calypsoAKcowl – we’d love to see everyone’s work!

This kit provides the yarn and pattern for the Alaska Cowl! This is a cozy, warm cowl – perfect for Alaskan winters! It’s a fun knit with three colorful Latvian braids, creating a unique and beautiful look. Also perfect for winter holiday gifts!

The colorful yarn is handspun at Calypso, made from Shetland wool from Calypso’s flock and blended with mohair and silk. The solid colored yarn is mill spun, sourced from wool grown sustainably in the United States. All proceeds from wool sales benefit Calypso’s educational programs.


  • 1 skein colorful yarn
  • 1 skein solid-colored yarn
  • Alaska Cowl pattern

This project requires size 11, 16″ circular needles – not included.

Please keep in mind that actual yarn color may vary from the photographed examples. The colors in the photos are represented as accurately as possible, however different computer monitors could portray slight variations. Each handspun skein is hand-dyed and therefore one-of-a-kind, so while the colorways are very similar, colors may vary from skein to skein.
