A lovely cowl in a simple flowing lace pattern, designed to drape cozily around your neck for extra warmth on a chilly day.

Suitable for an advanced beginner knitter, the lace pattern only requires yarnovers and purling stitches together to create the effect. The pattern includes both charted and written instructions.

Finished size is approximately 22” at the bottom edge, 18” at the top, and 10” high.

Suggested yarn is DK weight wool or wool blend (wool/silk, wool/rayon, wool/bamboo) or any yarn with sufficient drape and elasticity. A cotton yarn would not be suitable, as it would be very difficult to work the purl stitches together as instructed.
