Have you ever thought, “Another cowl?! What will I do with another cowl?!” I have, too. But, I’ve accepted the fact that there’s always room for one more; especially when the design is different from all the others and is loads of fun to knit. I am addicted to Japanese lace, and this pattern uses stitches featured in the Japanese Knitting Stitch Bible, by Hitomi Shida. And it is an easy one. It has the signature twisted stitches and raised design common to Japanese lace patterns. Cowl Number 46,104 can be knitted and worn as either a scarf or a cowl. This project is a lacy, fun piece to work, and it is full of luxurious drape. The design includes a buttoned closure (but no buttonholes!) so it can be buttoned and worn as a cowl, wrapped around the neck twice before buttoning to be worn as a neck warmer, or left unbuttoned and worn as a scarf. So versatile! It is light, and it can be knit in any fiber so it can be worn in any climate. Gauge is not an issue. Want your cowl larger? Work more pattern repeats. Pattern contains written instructions as well as charts. Use cotton or wool, fingering or worsted weight yarn and small or large needles. All choices are yours!
