This cowl features a repeating leaf motif that calls to mind fall foliage. A looser gauge and lacework make this a lightweight piece that will wear well in the transition between seasons. Knit flat and seamed together, you can customize this cowl to be as long or as short as you desire!

The pattern is both charted and written out.
