Description

This frothy cowl in two sizes (S/L) is pure delight when knit with a super-soft luxury blend yarn, for optimal drape and hand. Starting at the hem with a frothy cable and lace pattern and working upward through the body in garter stitch and mesh, the piece lends itself easily to resizing in width or depth as yarn supply allows. Shown in a two-color arrangement, the knitter could easily add a third shade or opt to work in a solid color throughout—the design lends itself nicely to gradient colorways as well.

Suggested Yarns: 
Yak + Silk Lace, Cormo Lace, Modern Deco Lace, Kent Lace, Shetlandia Fingering, Jacob FingeringChebris Lace, or any light fingering/heavy lace yarn that knits to pattern gauge 
   
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
