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.
Sample shown is the small size neck warmer, knit in EcoButterfly Pakucho Cotton Sport, color Forest Mist
