“But the whaleman, as he seeks the food of light, so he lives in light.”
Moby-Dick, “The Lamp”

Pattern includes instructions for both the cowl and shawl versions.

A shawl and cowl inspired by the whalemen’s quarters below the Pequod’s deck.

The Lamp can be worked as either a cowl or shawl, with either a garter stitch edging, which is worked as part of the main panel, or a simple crochet edging, which is worked after the main panel is complete. The shawl shown has the garter stitch edging, and the cowl shown has the crochet edging.
