Alternating columns of pineapples and shells create an illusion of fiery feathers when crocheted in a tonal hand-dyed yarn. The stretchy lace pattern allows this cowl to be draped once around the shoulders, or wrapped twice for a cozy fit as the weather gets cooler. The bluefaced Leicester yarn used in the sample has a lovely halo that fills the spaces between the chain loops and shells to create a light weight yet warm cowl.

Inspired by Blue Moon Fiber Arts BFL fingering weight, this cowl is part of Laurinda’s Hooked on Hand Dyed project.
