Did you ever spend time day-dreaming on the edge of a dune, overlooking the waves and slowly being cradled by the sound of the sea? Water, reflections, waves and ripples in the sand, all these seem to have a fascinating and almost hypnotising power to them. The Wavelet cowl is a play of receding lines and gentle crests inspired by the sea.
If you cannot choose what’s your favourite thing to knit, lace or cables, stop dithering. You won’t have to choose anymore! The Wavelet cowl gives it all to you, offering a mix of lace and cable stitches in a soft and squishy worsted yarn to wrap your neck in. There is a chance you’ll want to live in your new cowl!
