The Springerle Cowl features basic decreases and yarn overs to create the feel of pressed cookies on a background of reverse stockinette. One cable interconnects the shapes into an all-over pattern. Named Springerle for the traditional cookies our family makes every year at the holidays. Directions for both the Long and Short versions are fully written and charted as two separate patterns giving you two cowl patterns for the price of one! If you’re interested in baking the cookies too, I’ve shared our family recipe in this blog post - https://tamaramoots.com/2019/10/17/personal-springerle-re...
