This was the August 2015 Tasty Tosh pattern!

This cozy cowl features an all over fern leaf lace pattern reminiscent of a forest canopy, just like the one on my favorite Hawaiian Island. But unlike Hawaii, our winters require warm, cozy accessories, so this cowl helps bring a little of the island to my winters! The top-down design widens at the shoulders with a larger leaf pattern to add drama to the border and a more comfortable fit to this cowl. Knit in either a shorter wear-with-everything version, or a longer, slouchier deep winter version that will cover your chin, nose & cheeks if needed! In your favorite DK weight yarn, this cowl will be a stunning addition to your cold-weather wardrobe!
