Just because it’s warmed up is no reason to stop wearing hand-knits! This lightweight lacy cowl is a great use for that special skein of hand-dye or gradient set. Easy-to-work bands of eyelets alternate with short-row garter stitch sections, and there’s no purling until the final edge (3 rounds). Work it in a solid, in two colors, using a gradient kit, or in one of Miss Babs’ crazy variegated colorways!

Skills required:
• Increasing
• Simple eyelet lace (yarn overs and decreases)
• Short rows in garter stitch

• Height in back – 7”
• Depth in front – 11”
• Circumference at top – 22”
• Circumference at bottom – 42”

Yardage details:
For gradient version:
• MC (lightest in sample) - 130-145 yards
• CC1 - 30-35 yards
• CC2 - 35-40 yards
• CC3 - 40-45 yards
• CC4 - 40-45 yards
Total yardage (for either version) - 275-310

The lower end of the yardage estimates are what was actually used for the samples. I normally add 10% to allow for differences in yardage consumption, which is reflected in the upper end of the range.
