I love the look of lacy cowls and scarves but they’re not so appropriate when it’s snowy and windy! That’s why I designed this cowl which gives the aesthetic of a lacy cowl while keeping you toasty warm with a second buffer loop layered under the lace.

I used a contrasting color for my buffer loop which adds nice additional color. While I wrote the pattern for two colors, this cowl would also look great in one color. You can also wear this cowl several different ways as depicted in the pattern page photos.

This pattern includes written out instructions as well as charts in a printer friendly format. (2 pages only)
