I love a quick, knit-it-up-in-a-weekend kind of project, especially when the results are this lovely and instantly wearable!

This fairly simple, but very visually pleasing, leaf lace stitch marries beautifully with just one hank of Malabrigo Worsted to produce a cowl that you will easily knit again and again.

The almost-therapeutic nature of knitting with Malabrigo yarn is certainly a great thing, as are the gorgeous kettle-dyed colorways. The cowl shown here is in Orchid, a beautiful pink with lilac tones.

A few hours here and a few hours there working this easy-to-learn stitch, plus one joining seam, and you’ll have this pretty cowl to throw on or give away.

The stitch pattern produces curved edges and lines that make this a truly feminine accessory.
