Sometimes, inspiration strikes from the strangest places. This cowl is born from the sudden and urgent need to knit something warm and quick to wrap myself in. Just like that. And I happened to have that lovely skein of thicker yarn that I had been saving for some time. Just like that. (Well no… not just like that.. but you know what I mean!…).
Intermezzo uses an all-over lace pattern with easy stitches and a textured border.
In no time, you’ll be wearing the lacy Intermezzo cowl to warm you on all your field trips or nonchalantly wrapped around your neck as a statement piece. So dig that one lovely skein out of your stash!
