Pula, in Setswana, literally means “rain” and for the people of Botswana it symbolizes peace, happiness and abundance of life. Thus is the inspiration for my Pula! Pula! cowl. Yarn overs and knit stitches create the illusion of raindrops on a reverse stockinette background and give the cowl texture and interest. Enjoy and may peace and happiness be with you!
