This little cowl is perfect for spring, autumn and winter when extra warmth is always needed. Shown in Shetland Heather, the beautiful tweed tones add a bit of colour to the darker months as well as being soft and warm -and it only needs one ball to complete! Perfect for those odd balls of wool lying in your stash. The texture also shows off handspun yarns beautifully.

It features a simple textured cable and lace pattern, interspersed with sections of stocking and moss stitch for an interesting knit. Instructions are given in both written and charted form to make this pattern very easy to follow and quick to knit - perfect for a first lace or cable project.
