This pattern forms part of the Friendship Across the Oceans Collection with Clare Devine

Here is a preview of the whole collection: Introduction to Friendship Across the Oceans

The world can feel like an enormous place, and yet tiny, all at the same time. The physical distances between us is quite vast, and we can not just drop in for a cup of tea. But thanks to technology, we are never really very far from a friendly chat or a word of encouragement.
As I watch the waves splash onto my shores here in South Africa I imagine how these same particles of water might at one time or another been lapping around Clare’s feet in Australia.

The cowl is knit in the round with a simple wave lace pattern on the bottom and top edges. Columns of rib extent from the waves on the bottom edge to the wave pattern on the top edge, connecting the 2 side of the world. It is interesting enough to be fun to knit but simple enough to knit while chatting with a friend or watching TV.

Although the cowl is written to use one full skein of the glorious Hartlam yarn, there are instruction in the pattern as to how you can adjust it if you have more or less yarn


Thank you to my Technical editor Sally Trollip and my amazing testers
