Crossing Paths

Inspired by the intricate ways that our lives entwine themselves. The stitches carefully crossing each other’s paths working together to create an exquisitely textured lace and cable pattern.

This is a celebration of the beautiful moments where friends cross paths on their journeys, relishing in the joy of shared memories and the excitement of making plans for the future.

Crossing Paths is worked flat with carefully thought out details that add a wonderful finish to the cowl. I-cord edges are worked with the body of the cowl complimenting the striking lace pattern. The cowl can be closed with buttons and i-cord buttonholes are joined in the round by either grafting or a three-needle bind off. While the lace and cable pattern looks intricate it is surprisingly easy to knit.

Detailed video tutorials have been created to walk you through the techniques used, step by step.

Using a single skein of gorgeous DK this cowl is the perfect project for showcasing that special skein. The length of the cowl is easy to adapt to suit the yardage of the yarn you have chosen.
