This is a light, lacy cowl that has a pretty floral lace pattern. This project would be a nice project for a beginner who wants to move on to lace, but it is also suitable for those who are advanced beginners and experienced knitters as well. This is great as a quick and easy gift or for making yourself something nice with that small skein of special yarn you bought! This cowl can easily be adjusted to make it longer or shorter if desired by adding or subtracting multiples of twelve stitches.

The pattern is fully written out and fully charted.

Gauge is 24 stitches and 36 rows per 4 inches knit in pattern (unblocked) in the round (although gauge is not terribly important for this pattern)

Finished dimensions:
Unblocked - 9 inches high and 41 inches around
Blocked - 12 inches high and 62 inches around


Yarn: Fingering weight yarn (100 grams OR 400 yards)

Needles and Notions:

  • 3.5mm (US size 4) circular needle or size necessary to achieve gauge.
  • Tapestry (darning) needle
  • Stitch marker (if desired to mark the beginning of your round)
