This very simple cowl features horizontal welts by alternating Stockinette and reverse Stockinette stitch. The laceweight Silk Mist yarn creates a weightless accessory with the appearance of great volume. A piece like this is perfect for the transitional seasons of spring and fall, and would be equally useful on cool summer nights. I love how such a whisper thin fabric can be so effectively warm and cozy. But what I like most of all is the ability to scrunch up a scarf like this and stuff it into a coat pocket to make it disappear when I’m not wearing it. My intention was a modern use for this laceweight silk/mohair blend.

This pattern is intended to use up every last inch of yarn, if you’ve made a particularly large swatch you may need to unravel it to achieve the full height of the cowl.
