This beautiful cowl is a delight to knit. Beginning with a provisional cast on, work four sections of varying layouts of a simple pretty lace repeat then finish with a little stocking stitch before picking up your provisional cast on and joining it all together with a lovely smooth kitchener stitch. Once you’ve blocked it you will love wearing this gorgeous cowl, named after Mr Roost’s super clever knitting and spinning late Auntie Maggie. Wear it loose, tuck it into your jacket, add a brooch or shawl pin, or wrap it twice for extra coziness. So versatile!
