Naos (Greek for temple) is a simple, long triangular shawl with a pattern reminiscent of the triglyph/metope friezes found on my favorite ancient Greek structures. Increases are performed on every row of this shawl to give it a long and narrow shape, and the frieze pattern repeats down the length of it. In a merino wool yarn, the frieze pattern really pops, and the shawl is warm enough to take the place of a sweater on mild fall days. Monochromatic, color-blocked, or striped, Naos is a fun and simple way to play with color.

Specific yarn requirements: 
690 yds/ 630 m of DK weight yarn 

US 7 (4.5 mm) circular needles, at least 32”/ 80 cm long, or size needed to obtain gauge

15 sts & 28 rows = 4”/ 10 cm in Stockinette st and frieze pattern 
Meeting this exact gauge is not crucial, but any major differences will affect the size of the finished cowl as well as yarn requirements.

- 4/19/18: The Frieze pattern should be worked a total of 5 times and the stitch count should be 306 sts before moving on to the Border. This has been corrected in version 2 of the pattern.
