Sinuous curves of lace wind their way through this lovely cowl, reminiscent of the way narrow roads zigzag up steep slopes. It’s small enough to tuck into your purse in anticipation of a cold day, but generous enough to keep your neck cozy and warm. This is the perfect project for a luxuriously soft yarn.
