Let It Flow cowl is the perfect addition to your in-between-seasons accessory wardrobe.

Check my designer page on the current promotions and discounts in my pattern store.

The cowl is worked flat, sideways and on the bias in two alternating colours. Then the ends of the knitted piece are joined together to form a loop.

This design incorporates a special selvage stitch technique in place of traditional way of carrying the non-working yarn strand to the next section to make the decorative and neat looking edge. A photo tutorial for selvage stitches is included in separate pdf file.

Let your creativity flow by working each lace section in a different stitch pattern that fits into a pattern’s stitch count, as in the sample by Felix79654.

In April’s 2019 update I included three additional stitch patterns to alternate in each consecutive repeat. My decision was inspired by knitters projects where they substituted the main stitch pattern used in the original design with their preferred stitch patterns from various sources.
