Here in the UK, snow days are few and far between, so when they actually happen, they are pretty magical. As a teacher, getting that call to say the school is closed due to snow is exciting. A bonus day off, where all you can do is drink hot chocolate, watch films and knit is special and knowing that the children you work with will be having the best time makes it even better. So here is a pattern to replicate that magic; the first twinkling flakes, which turn into glistening flurries, before falling as deep drifts. This is a snuggly three-colour cowl to be worn on such a day, featuring tactile textures and delicate lace. This pattern uses techniques suitable for confident beginners and lovers of lace. This is a perfect gift-knit, which takes around 150g of fingering weight yarn so you could choose three skeins and make one for yourself and one for a friend! You can use your favourite hand dyed yarn or choose three balls of commercial yarn for a more budget friendly option.
