A warm, oversized, easy-to-knit lace cowl that’s great for color scraps!

This pattern is knit flat and sewn together when you’re finished. The pattern doesn’t call for a provisional cast on, but if you prefer to use seam together live edges, you could use a provisional cast on without impacting the overall appearance of the cowl.


Modifications

HEIGHT

The finished cowl is really tall (this is awesome). But! If this isn’t your cup of tea, adjust the number of stitches CO to any multiple of 8 and you’ll be on your merry way. You could also make it larger if you want.

CIRCUMFERENCE

This is a standard, single-wrap cowl. To make a cowl that wraps twice (or even three times!), grab a ton of yarn and just keep knitting until you’ve reached the desired size. Alternate the colors and patterns whenever you feel motivated.

YARN WEIGHT

Because this is so simple, it can be knit in any yarn weight you like. Just remember to adjust the CO multiple by 8 and have plenty of yarn handy.
