Spring Light Lace Mesh Cowl or Snood

Beginning lace project. Just a single round of 3 sts to memorize!

Ribbing intro and exit rounds frame the pretty lace mesh.

No blocking necessary.

Stitch pattern looks nice tighter or more open.

Easily worked longer or shorter.

Gauge is not critical but will affect width and yardage

Sample gauge (unblocked)
19 sts in K2, P2 ribbing = 4”(10cm)


Sample 17” (43 cm) around at ribbing by 15” (38 cm)tall over all.
The lace mesh is very stretchy and will expand length and/or width-wise.

I had just the one ball of this lovely Ty Dy cotton and wanted to do something special with it that would accentuate and not obscure the gorgeous mirrored color striping, but still have some patterning more than simple K n P and this was what I came up with. * Note: If you use the Ty Dy and knit longer/shorter than the 15 +/- inches you get with one ball it will not mirror the colors as shown.
