Positivity Spiral

This one-skein, crocheted cowl pattern has a simple 16 stitch and 8 round repeat which makes it easy to memorize and creates a simple and elegant piece.

It uses filet crochet to create lace holes that work up in a spiral around the cowl, alongside Herringbone Trebles that create a flat, drapey fabric.

The pattern gives hook sizes, gauge information, estimated circumference and depth of finished object over seven yarn weights (heavily laceweight, 4ply/fingering, heavy 4 ply/fingering, sportweight, DK, aran/worsted, chunky/bulky).

If you make this cowl please do upload your WIP and FO on Ravelry. It would be great to see it on Instagram too - #PositivitySpiral #FayDHDesigns @faydhdesigns
