Designed for the Lambs On The Run trip to Italy in March of 2019, this lacy cowl takes inspiration from Italian art and architecture. The stitch pattern is Roman Stripe from Barbara Walker’s A Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns, while the colorway is Italian Marble, specially dyed for this project by Theodora’s Pearls. The yarn is a luxurious blend of 50% superwash merino and 50% silk provided in 231 yards (211 meters)/100 gram skein.

The cowl is worked in the round in a reversible pattern that repeats over 2 stitches and 14 rounds. It begins with a Channel Island cast-on and ends with a matching Channel Island bind-off for decorative edges.

A chart is provided as well as round-by-round instructions.
