This light and lacy cowl is inspired by the granite coast of Maine, where the chilly evenings prompt the wise knitter to keep a stock of quick handknits around—even in August!

A large number of stitches are initially cast on, but 60% are bound off on the next row, resulting in a looped edge. The simple lace body allows the mottling pattern of the Malabrigo Lace (held doubled) to shine. Loops are also created at the bind off by adding back the stitches that had been removed at the beginning.

Many thanks to my to my technical editor, Stephannie Tallent, and to Malabrigo Yarns for their sponsorship of this pattern via the Malabrigo Quickies project.
