One cake of color-changing “Blossoms” and three simple lace patterns come together to create this lyrical stitch sampler cowl.

NOTE: The first version of the pattern did not say “join in the round” after casting on. This cowl is worked in the round.

The photo shows the cowl with one less repeat of the first stitch pattern than the pattern lists. This was to help ensure no one ran out of yarn. Add it back if you don’t mind a little yarn chicken. ;)
