All we’ve been hearing about lately is COVID-19, and most of us are practicing social distancing to protect the most vulnerable in our population. All of my patterns are 50% off until things are back to normal. Just type in the code TOGETHER (can be used more than once). Stay healthy and in the words of Elizabeth Zimmerman, “Knit on with confidence and hope through all crises”.

Cables and lace always make a stellar combo, and when knit in a soft, squishy yarn, the stitches really pop. I hand dyed a couple skeins of KP Felici Bare in a tonal green for this cowl, but I think if would look fab in a solid color. The pattern is fully written and charted.
