Collins Brook Cowl
Named after the brook that zig-zags behind my home in Maine, Collins Brook Cowl is a versatile worsted-weight cowl pattern that is knit in the round and features an easy zig-zag lace stitch pattern.
This cowl can be created and worn in multiple ways:
- Long version can be worn simply draped around the neck (as shown in pictures 3 & 6) or wrapped twice around your neck (as shown in pictures 1, 2 & 4)
- Short version can be worn around the neck or a button closure can be used for a closer fit (as shown in picture 5)
Never done any kind of simple lace work before? This pattern is a great choice for lace newbies and provides a good introduction into a couple of the most basic techniques that you’ll find with lace work.
