As well as housing doves and pigeons, in Scots a doocot can refer to any cosy compartment or room. Immediately conveying a sense of comfort and enclosure, doocot is as fitting a word for a handknit sweater, as it is for the ad-hoc, urban doocots that are a familiar sight around Glasgow and its environs. (See here for examples)

Knitted from the top down, Doocot features slipped-stitch ribbing and a comfortable wide, cropped shape, which can be lengthened as desired. If you wish to add length to the body, you may need an extra skein of yarn.

Kit contains Kate Davies Designs Schiehallion in the Doris shade and your chosen size plus Schiehallion project bag and PDF pattern download.
