A zee-licious, graphic eyelet lace, knit-in-the-round cowl that can be knit big enough to double around your neck or in a wider single loop for a lush, loose cowl that drapes gracefully, or in a cozy stovepipe cowl.

Gauge: 17 sts. x 24 rows. While gauge in this design is not critical, the sizes given determine the yarn needed.

Half a dozen samples knit in different yarns will inspire you, if you prefer to customize your Zee Cowl. Or stashbust!
