Need an elegant gift-knit that just takes a few hours but makes a big impact? This gently shaped cowl features a 2 row stitch pattern that looks impressive but works up in a snap. Wear it “au natural” for a scruncy and casual look, or wet block the lace to open up and lie flat; the choice is yours. I designed this pattern to make the most of one skein of hand-painted merino, but it would look lovely in any DK/Light Worsted yarn.
