Designed for the person who inspired me to knit the Antoinette Cowl is a feminine lacy neckwarmer. The swirls of delicate texture are combined with tiny mock cables, traveling stitches, and a little openwork to create depth. An i-cord bind off is worked for a smooth and stretchy edging.

This elegant cowl is the perfect luxury layering piece for a chilly winter day!

Choose a yarn with terrific stitch definition-

-shown in colorway: Bashful 275 yards

Needles: 5/3.75mm needles & size 6/4mm needles for bind off

Gauge: 24 stitches = 4 inches in garter stitch after blocking. Although gauge is not crucial for this project, it will affect the finished size and yarn requirements. A looser gauge will result in the use of more yarn.
Finished Size: 18” circumference by 13” long after gentle blocking.

The pattern contains written as well as fully charted instructions. It is not necessary to read charts.
