Calm Waters is a two coloured cowl with a lovely lace pattern. It is knit in the round, very relaxing to make and knits up quickly!

Spending my holiday in Sweden enjoying the peaceful silence and sitting at the beautiful lakes inspired me to knit this little cowl - the pretty lace pattern just seemed to reflect the calming quality of the soft waves of the water just perfectly.
