Song of the Sea
This versatile cowl develops in lovely Art Deco waves. It is a smaller, simpler version of the popular Midnight Ocean - for those who want something elegant to wear every day. If you like Midnight Ocean, you’ll love this! It can be made from a standard 100g skein of 4ply/sock yarn with sufficient yardage.
Two sizes are given in the pattern. The snug cowl would fit neatly inside your coat collar. You can wear the long cowl singly to look decorative and drapy, or twist it up double to be cosy. The long cowl is shown in the main photographs; the snug cowl is shown in the last two images.
Knitted in the round, it is an easy piece for an intermediate lace knitter since there are no fancy stitches. It is more about the fun of watching the developing pattern unfold.
A novice lace knitter with experience of knitting in the round on other projects would also find this a straightforward first lace project.
Both written instructions AND charts are given.
