This soft, slouchy neckwarmer or cowl in three sizes (S/M/L), features an allover motif reminding us of delicate, early spring blooms. The heavily textured pattern makes the most of midweight yarns that lack body; it will add depth to cashmere, mohair, cotton, alpaca, and silk blends. But don’t hesitate if instinct tells you to choose a fine lace yarn for a sheer result with delicate rounded shapes! While somewhat challenging, with simple lacework on every round, the effort is worth the stunning result in the especially pretty, deeply scalloped edges.
