Cardita Cowl by Andrea Rangel
This lacy top-down cowl is knit completely in the round and features an allover purl shell pattern with lots of
depth and texture, due to a constant grouping and ungrouping of stitch clusters. The easily memorized pattern and lightweight yarn choices make this a perfect on-the-go project, which is easily resized. Long enough to wrap twice, this light layer is also deep enough to tame windblown hair while enjoying breezy beach or boat outings.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
