Primarily composed of two lace patterns, Nattering is a relatively straightforward cowl. It vacillates between the Orchid and Janus lace, while stockinette zigzags provide rest in between. The cowl concludes with a Beech Leaf edging that flares out to drape easily across the collarbone.

The main body of the cowl is worked in the round from top to bottom. Afterwards, edging is created by casting on additional stitches using the cable cast-on method and then worked flat, joined to the body by decreases. That cast-on edge is later seamed to the bound-off stitches to join the edging.

Both written and charted directions are given, as well as a mini photo tutorial for working the edging.
