What can I say; I love cowls! They are fun to work up, keep the neck cozy, and behave themselves during commutes. There’s little chance they’ll fall off running from point A to point B. This particular design plays with the traditional Norwegian star motif, and features some bold linear details that keep the project interesting. The Nicholas cowl requires knitting knowledge including: Knit/purl, reading charts, colorwork; all on circular needles. The sample was worked using the technique of locked floats.
