Cobh (/kouv/) is a colorful seaport town on the south coast of County Cork, Ireland. Garter stitch and an easy-to-memorize 2-stitch lace repeat is the perfect landscape to play with color, so it seemed fitting to name this design after such a lovely town. Plus, the crescent shape is versatile to wear as a shawl, wrap, or bunched up as a scarf on a chilly evening.
