Named for the romantic hero of my favorite opera, The Barber of Seville, this 2 color fingering weight cowl alternates between easy lace, relaxing stripes and engaging colorwork. Long enough to loop around the neck, this is the perfect lightweight layer for cool spring and summer evenings.

Please note that the pattern has been altered slightly from the sample pictured. The hem ribbing following the colorwork has been increased to 3” to prevent rolling/flipping. If you prefer the look of the original you can simply shorten the hem ribbing to the length you desire.*
