Ladd's Circle Cowl
This pattern was originally published as Happy Knits’ contribution to the 2014 Rose City Yarn Crawl, February 27 - March 2, 2014 in Portland, Oregon.
The Ladd’s Circle Cowl was inspired by the rich history of the neighborhood Happy Knits is nestled in. Ladd’s Addition is the oldest planned residential development in Portland and is well known for its gorgeous houses, diagonal streets and rose gardens. The color choices in the cowl reflect the era in which the vintage homes were built and the gorgeous roses that encapsulate the area.
