Tru Love Bites
Please note: Promotional $3 pricing for this pattern ends on 7/1/14, at which time the pattern price will increase to $5.00.
The Tru Love Bites cowl, inspired by the HBO series True Blood, is a summer-weight cowl that drapes over your shoulders like a shawlette, but has the ease and convenience of wearing like a cowl, with a little neck coverage too…you know, to cover up those bite marks. Trickling eyelets lead to a slightly ruffled bottom edge; the result of a simple lace pattern to create the wavy points along the bottom.
Created in honor of the ”Sookie’s Last Stand” Lorna’s Limited Edition Colorway available only at Jimmy Beans Wool for the month of June 2014, this cowl uses just one skein of Sportmate yarn, or about 270 yds of Sport weight yarn.
