The first time I saw a picture of the spectacular fan vaulted ceiling in the chapel of the University of Cambridge’s King’s College, I was spellbound. If anything first kindled my passion for art history, this was it. The King’s College Cowl is inspired by the expanding ribbed forms in the vault, the delicate arched support columns, and the expansive stained glass windows that make this building such a stunning work of art.

This cowl is perfect for that small skein of special yarn you never know what to make with - the lace pattern knits up quickly but yields dramatic results while using very little overall yardage.

The King’s College Cowl pattern is both charted and written, so all knitters can feel in their element, and either version can be printed onto a single, double-sided, page.
