Saint Veronica, whose feast day is July 12, is the name given by the Church to the woman who wiped Jesus’ face in an act of compassion as He walked, carrying His cross, to Calvary. Rather than try to create a True Icon in knitting, as her name means, this cowl uses symbolism from that event. Slipped stitches create a crown of thorns on a simple background. Perfect for meditative knitting and gifts, it can also be worked quickly.
