Love Nature Cowl
Love Nature is a simple, classic cowl designed as a stand alone piece or as a companion to the Ngahere slouch beanie. Spending time in nature is really important to my family. My children and I love spending every day exploring our natural surrounds and I can see how happy and energised this makes them. I wanted to reflect the beauty, strength and delicacy of nature that we see in the interwoven leaves and lace.
Love Nature is written as a relaxed fit cowl, knit in the round from the bottom upwards. An interwoven leaf and lace panel travels from the garter stitch edge, through the stocking stitch body to the top.
The pattern is written for 4ply/fingering, 8ply/DK weight and 10ply/worsted weight yarn and is in child – adult sizing.
