Description: Shetland Lace, characterized by eyelet patterns against a garter stitch background, is a centuries-old technique originating on an island off the northern coast of Scotland. Historically, knitters used this technique to make gossamer-thin shawls that are treasured for their delicate beauty. In this updated use of the technique, we’re creating a lovely cowl. In its single-wrapped version, the cowl adds a colorful accent to a cool weather wardrobe, and can also be pulled up over the head, scarf-style, to block the wind. In the double-wrapped version, the cowl provides more snuggly warmth at the neck.

The sample is shown in Sock-aholic Serene, colorway Frosting on Top.
