This cowl was designed in the same weekend that I ran the Yorkshire Coast 10k race in Scarborough. The weather wasn’t particularly great after a storm had hit overnight and so the sea was quite rough. The view from the top of the cliffs, down over the sea and looking towards the fair made me think of the wavy lines in this pattern.

It is knitted in the round, with the lace worked on odd numbered rounds and all even numbered rounds just knit across. There is a section of garter stitch at the top and the bottom to prevent curling.

The pattern has a small and a large version. The large will take a full skein of yarn and the small around half a skein. There is a chart for the lace as well as written instructions and it includes a schematic.

All my patterns have been tech edited and test knitted.
