This cowl can provide warmth with a bit of style. The lacy bottom can lie flat underneath coats or jackets while the cabled body accentuates the neck. The cowl can be made as a collar to add to a crew neck shirt or sweater by knitting the shorter style; or made as a taller cowl for extra warmth with outerwear. You decide the height to suit your need or preference.

The knitting skill level is advanced beginner or intermediate and above. Knowledge of basic lace work (yarn over increases, decreases), working with circular needles, reading charts, and knitting in the round is helpful. The pattern uses two needle sizes and is charted for easy interpretation. Also included are links to helpful videos (for a different technique or to review). This pattern is fun and knits up fairly quick which makes it a nice weekend project or a quick gift. Need to use up some worsted weight yarn in your stash? Knit up a few of these cowls to put away for special events or holiday gift-giving.
