I love Japanese lace patterns. When I found this one, I couldn’t resist. I started designing a cowl, made several of those, and then couldn’t stop and went on to make a full shawl.

This pattern contains instructions for a cowl, wide scarf, or shawl. Your choice!

Maria, the cowl, is sized for worsted or Aran weight yarn. It takes about 100 yards.

Maude, the scarf or shawl, uses any weight of yarn. A table in the pattern shows how much to buy depending on which yarn you use.

This pattern is dedicated to my late grandmothers, Maria and Maude.

Skills taught in this pattern:
Stretchy bind-off for the cowl.
Creating 1 stitch from 3 in an unusual way.

Really Clear Skill Rating:
Level 2: You’re becoming fairly independent with knitting. You are comfortable with knitting, purling, and perhaps a few basic stitch patterns. You might need an explanation for a technique here and there rather than having the entire pattern being step-by-step.

4-page pattern.
