Sometimes, life brings remarkable people into your path. Some stay in your life forever, but some may only be part of your world temporarily, leaving you forever changed by having known them. When the time comes to say goodbye, how can you possibly express what they have meant to you? For a knitter, the answer is easy – by giving them your time, your work, a piece of yourself to carry with them. A hat to stay warm, a scarf to keep the wind out, or a blanket to snuggle under, each stitch infused with gratitude and love. Miss C Cowl is the second instalment in a series conceived, designed, and knit to honour just such a remarkable person in my life.

Miss C Cowl is knit flat in a cable and lace pattern and grafted or seamed together to form a loop. Choose from two sizes: Cowl, for a snug, warm fit; or infinity scarf, for multiple wearing options. Miss C cowl is suitable for bulky or aran weight yarns that block well, in solid or semi-solid colours.
