Lana begins like a traditional top-down shawl, then it is joined and worked in the round. Two-color garter stitch stripes give way to a wide knit border with staggered purl stitch accents. Two skeins of the Plucky Bello yarn will make two identical cowls, or reverse the colors on the second cowl. Lana is quick to knit and easy to wear, adding warmth without bulk.
