Diamond Ring Cowl
This pattern was originally published as part of the Twisted Cowl Club in January 2013.
This cowl came to be at a very special time in my life – just after I got engaged. The elegant lace patterns used are drawn from the lines of the vintage 1930s engagement ring that was my fiancé’s grandmother’s and is now mine. What can I say? I guess diamonds were on my mind.
Wear this cowl and be wrapped up in the timeless ardor and charm of promise.
