Not quite a cable, not really lace, this pretty little twisted eyelet stitch pattern lends itself nicely to knitting in the round. Based on a favorite shop pattern, the softly draping cowl tapers a wee bit to keep it closer to the neck. We knit the matching beanie a little tighter for a stretchier fit. Cleverly mitered crown shaping resolves the stitch pattern beautifully… if we do say so ourselves.
