Lierne Cowl - aka Tierceron II

Charted pattern. Using American English knitting terms abbreviations and symbols - glossary provided.

Intermediate skill level. Recommend experience with uneven/moving repeat boundaries, but instructions and clear chart provided.


Worked in the round, mid line outward, from a provisional CO.

Uses needle size progressions for shaping.

Tightly worked at the top to allow for a standing ‘collar’, which grows into a wider softer flow for the lace bottom.

Requires swatching for gauge/tension and blocking of finished item.

Tutorial images for blocking included (as separate optional print out section).
