Similar in shape to herStarshowercowl, but in worsted weight yarn, Adama is a quick-to-knit shawl-cowl hybrid. Named for the Latin word fordiamond(as well as, yes, the captain of Battlestar Galactica), it is shaped as a shawl, but the second half is worked in the round to create the illusion of a semi-circular shawl worn wrapped around the neck without ends to worry about tying. The majority of the cowl is done in a simple diamond lace pattern, with bands of Stockinette and Garter stitch breaking things up. Using a worsted weight wool- cashmere blend on large needles gives this cowl a cozy, rustic appearance and cuts the knitting time to practically nothing.
