Rosehaven. Evocative of a sun room’s windows framed by old-growth climbing roses in full bloom, or the rose garden at a country manor house with bushes absolutely covered with fragrant old-fashioned blossoms. Knit this thick cowl and surround yourself with sweet-smelling blooms on the coldest winter days.
Cowl is worked in the round with yarn held doubled, and knit from one end straight through to the other. Add a repeat or two to widen it, then this stretchy cowl can easily double as a cozy capelet.
