It is my mission to inspire and educate you on your path as a knitter. Because of this, when you purchase this pattern, you will get two tutorials included in the pdf for provisional cast on and kitchener stitch. Feel confident in trying a new skill with a beautiful design!

There are times in life that go by smoothly. You coast through daily routines, effortlessly weaving in and out of life’s decisions and nuances. But then you hit a speed bump, and life starts to get a little…tangled. It’s in those moments where your true self is created. When life gets you down, you rise up and work through it, showing compassion, integrity, and empathy.

This cowl exemplifies that transitory period of life. You begin with an easy seed stitch, working your way through effortlessly. Then it hits you: a border of i-cord smack dab in the middle of your project! No worries though, you’ve got this. You get through to the lace pattern, learning the stitches, getting to know the design. Before you know it, you’ve completed a beautiful, soft, snuggly cowl to wrap yourself up in. You have your diamond, and you have become a diamond, shaped by the hardships you’ve been through and overcome.
