The Candy Cane Cowl uses knits, decreases and yarn overs in a simple lace to evoke one of my favorite bits of the Holiday season. Cowl is offered in two sizes. Directions for both the Long and Short versions are fully written and charted as two separate patterns giving you two cowl patterns for the price of one! Both versions use the same pattern repeat in different weights of yarn – DK weight for the long version and Worsted weight for the shorter more fitted version.
