All we’ve been hearing about lately is COVID-19, and most of us are practicing social distancing to protect the most vulnerable in our population. All of my patterns are 50% off until things are back to normal. Just type in the code TOGETHER (can be used more than once). Stay healthy and in the words of Elizabeth Zimmerman, “Knit on with confidence and hope through all crises”.

I will warn you now…this lacy stitch is so addicting it’ll be hard to put your knitting down! The pattern is written for fingering, sport, DK and worsted, plus has instructions for adapting the cowl for ANY gauge and ANY size. Fully written and charted. Pattern has been tested and approved! Sample was knit with Knit Picks Gloss DK in Velveteen.

Gauge
Note: Due to the scalloped nature of the stitch pattern, row gauge can be difficult to measure. The row measurements given here were taken along the column of 3 knit stitches on the wrong side of the swatch. Matching row gauge is not critical.
Worsted: 19 sts/20 rounds = 4in/10 cm in Cascading Lace in the round, blocked
DK: 23 sts/25 rounds = 4in/10 cm in Cascading Lace in the round, blocked
Sport: 28 sts/30 rounds = 4in/10 cm in Cascading Lace in the round, blocked
Fingering: 32 sts/35 rounds = 4in/10cm in Cascading Lace in the round, blocked

Finished Measurements
Approximately 26.5” circumference/15” height from top scallop tip to bottom scallop tip, after wet blocking
