The moment is now; the memory lasts forever. Now and Forever Cowl blends heirloom lace with a modern triangle shawl inspired cowl. It is knit top-down in the round, with a single purl stitch seam to simplify the lace pattern. There’s no need to worry about double decreases at the join! The 20-row repeat allows you to easily adjust the length of the cowl. The pattern provides both written and charted instructions for an enjoyable knit..
