Leila’s sweet cowl is a quick project for small amounts of yarn. A great last-minute gift, the cowl is worked circularly from the bottom up and features a woven cable motif sprinkled with intermittent lace leaf motifs. Top and bottom hems feature a 1×2 rib. Worked in our sagey Foothills colorway, Sweetgrass is a great lightweight layer to wear as Winter starts transitioning into Spring.
