Two-Faced Friend Cowl

Description

This lightweight closer fitting neckwarmer in three sizes (petite/medium/tall), features a reversible vertical lace and cable motif that reveals a complete changeup from back to front, with each side equally appealing. Delicate and airy, the openwork pattern shows off the halo of a fine luxury yarn, but the pattern could also be knit on larger needles with heavier yarn for extra warmth and a bolder look. The easy to knit pattern, worked entirely in the round makes an excellent gifting project and a very portable traveling companion.
