I love little round cowls, but sometimes you want more coverage. Cosette is a cozy (cosy!) cowl combined with a shawl-ish shape. It’s an easy to wear shape that doesn’t need fussing.

Knitting begins at the neck with a choice of 22 or 24” (56 or 61 cm) cowl. When the cowl is complete, the knitting continues with triangle shawl shaping in the round. Scrunch it up to wear it like a shawl! This cowl features 3 fun stitch patterns: a quilted lattice slip stitch pattern, a lacy eyelet flower, and a shell lace stitch made with elongated stitches. Choose between a brioche rib or K1P1 edging.

Cosette is knit with two skeins of fingering weight yarn.

This pattern is also available through my Payhip store here.
