I drew inspiration for this cowl design from the silky handle and glossy, almost-metallic sheen of Cascade’s Ultra Pima Fine mercerized cotton yarn, combined with it’s warm copper red color. The stitch pattern suggests rivulets of molten metal flowing throughout the length of the pattern.

Molten Copper Summer Cowl is a simple, quick knit, worked flat with minimal finishing and the added touch of the decorative beaded or buttoned closure.

The twisted stitch edges ensure that the stockinette based lace will not curl inward.
