This cowl was inspired by the color of the yarn I used, which reminded me of the beautiful spring crocus flowers.
An easy dropped stitch pattern creates a unique floral beads like effect,is a perfect cozy neckwear for spring. It is pretty, delicate feminine piece.

The lace edging (pattern is a simple repeat that can be knit as long as you’d like) is knit flat using provisional cast on and seamed using either kitchner stitch or 3 needle bind-off,then the stitches are picked up and the textured body of the cowl is knitted in the round.
