This textured lace cowl is made with fingering yarn held double to create a squishy, plush cowl that will snuggle in around your neck. The 5-stitch pattern repeat has enough going on to keep you interested, but it’s not complex enough to slow you down. Pair this texture with a solid, semi-solid or tonal colorway for a sophisticated accessory.

Crush On You is written for a circumference of 27” and a height of 23”, but both dimensions are easily modified, with instructions on how to do that included in the pattern.

Testers agreed that this pattern falls somewhere in the “Adventurous Beginner-to-Intermediate” category. Techniques used are:

• Knitting in the round
• Increasing and Decreasing
• Knitting into the row below (instructional video link included)
• Yarn Overs
• Knitting into the back loop

Instructions are both written out and charted. If your goal is to use up as much as possible of a yarn you have on hand, instructions are included on how much yarn to use before the top border section begins.

Many thanks to awesome testers shelbywoo, queenbayman & cyberspnr for double-checking this pattern!
