Yarn, she can be a cruel mistress. You see that one special skein and immediately snatch it up because it MUST be yours, but then you get it home and have absolutely no idea what to do with it. This triangle cowl is the answer to that siren’s call, it just takes 200 yards of Sport or Fingering weight yarn. The pattern was designed specifically with one skein Spincycle Dyed In The Wool in mind because those little color shifting skeins are so beautiful but it can be difficult to find a pattern to show off just one small skein. Since the lace looks great with color shifting yarn, it is also ideal for the handspun yarns you have been hoarding to brew who knows what with. Give in to the temptation.

This cowl is knit top down starting with a basic flat triangle shawl construction, it is then joined in the round for the last few rounds to create a triangle cowl shape. You can even use multiple single skeins up because the pattern includes two different border options; Siren’s Song and Lilith’s Lace. Siren’s Song is shown in Idle Nights (lighter yarn with blue/pink) and Lilith’s Lace is shown in Ruination (darker yarn with purple/green). Lace sections include both charted and written instructions.
