TWF = three way fun (three options; one even gives you 3 different looks from a single cowl)

But TWF was also designed as a little tribute to Mary Ann and all the fine spinners over in the Three Waters Farm group (they are running a KAL using TWF fibre and my patterns until the end of Feb. 2016 - link to the KAL).

I picked the stitch thinking it was a good way to represent ripples for “Three Waters Farm” and only spotted their logo after I’d made the first cowl - the similarity is uncanny. ☻

The lace panel requires a tiny bit of concentration, but I found it kept me motivated to keep knitting, and the whole thing knits up very quickly which is great for spinners. That way they can be wearing their latest spin and be back at the wheel creating more fabulousness in no time.

Other yarns can be substituted.

Stitch counts are provided for 5 different gauges.

many thanks to the testers:
