Become a knitting mixologist! Choose from a variety of lace patterns and stripes to create a unique cocktail of color and fiber that pleases you.

The Happy Hour Cowl is worked flat, using a clever trick of construction to create a circular cowl with no sewing or picked-up stitches. The sample follows the “simple” charts for the starting triangle; the pattern includes both the stripe sequences used in the sample.

This design calls for one skein of fingering-weight yarn for the main color and 3 minis (at least 50 yards each). For the main color, choose a fiber that blocks well (wool, for example), but for the minis feel free to experiment! Silk or linen could be the perfect garnish. Color choice determines the intensity of your finished cowl. Go bold or subtle … the choice is yours.

Full written translations of all charts are provided.

The sample used 350 yards of MC and 145 yards total of CC.
