Estonian influenced leaf lace is knit in the round for this little cowl. The textured lace gently scallops the beginning, and the ending edge either can be blocked in scallops or left even.
The lace repeats over 10 stitches and 20 rounds, so it is easy to customize the size.
Designed for fingering weight yarns, this cowl also can be knit in a variety of lace and Shetland/sport/DK weight yarns.
