Frons (Latin for foliage) is a quick, single-skein cowl with a pretty, leafy, allover lace pattern. The cowl is knit in the round from end to end and twisted before the two ends are joined. The lace pattern is a simple, rhythmic 4-row repeat – it knits up in no time and creates a very pretty little cowl that you’ll want in every color.
Specific yarn requirements:
Anzula Luxury Fibers Cricket (80% Superwash Merino, 10% Nylon, 10% Cashmere; 250 yds/ 229 m per 114g); 1 skein in Olivia
Or, 250 yds/ 230 m of DK weight yarn
US 5 (3.75 mm) needles preferred for working a small circumference in the round (e.g. 16”/ 40 cm long circular, dpns, circular long enough for Magic Loop, etc.), or size needed to obtain gauge
Second circular needle or dpns of same size
22 sts & 29 rows = 4”/ 10 cm in Stockinette st, blocked
18 sts & 27 rows = 4”/ 10 cm in lace pattern, blocked
Meeting these exact gauges is not crucial, but any major differences will affect the size of the finished cowl as well as yardage required.
