In honor of the Fall 20017 Knit for Fun Retreat in Vancouver, Washington, this textured cowl pays homage to one of my favorite fish flavors--salmon. The simple lace pattern resembles columns of fish tails. The yarn is Tern from Quince & Company in a “Salmon Mousse” colorway specially dyed by Forage Color.

The stitch pattern repeats over 17 stitches and 10 rounds, and is easy to follow once the columns are set up. I used the Norwegian (Twisted German) cast-on and the Sewn bind-off for matching edges, but you can use the method of your choice.

Note: This colorway is no longer available but any semi-solid or solid color will look lovely.
