Atlantis is Calling comes in a small and large size. Both can be pulled up as hoods if it gets exceptionally chilly or precipitation strikes suddenly. The larger cowl shows off the cables better and can be worn with a pin, and makes a roomy hood. The small size bundles closely around the neck and is snugger as a hood. Row gauge does not matter, as you can work more or less repeats to achieve desired cowl height. The deep blue and motif-like pattern call to mind stonework of a lost civilization. There are two different cables: a traditional braid and a variation on the Staghorn cable. Purl lace makes the cables pop and the cowl lightweight, and prevents the neck from getting too warm.
Due to the lace, this pattern is ideal for very warm fibers such as angora, cashmere, and llama. If made in a cotton or linen blend aran weight on similarly large needles, this could easily become a springtime accessory.
