Designed to show off hand-dyed yarn, this cowl uses traditional gansey patterns to beautiful effect.

This is a bold design for hand-dyed yarns, and will show up well in all but the darkest of colours. Smooth and nubbly textures allow you to appreciate all the subtle colour-shifts in your yarn.

Worked in the round, this is an easy lace project.
