Description

This light, squishy cowl in three sizes (S/M/L) transitions beautifully across several seasons when beautiful days are cooler, but not cold enough for an outerwear layer. Wear long and loose in a simple ring and double it up when the wind swirls—this piece features a reversible openwork pattern that makes styling a cinch. The movement of the motif creates a wavy effect that plays well with streaky natural shades or hand-dyed colorways. The simple stitchwork and highly portable, circular construction make this a great project for lace newbies and one that experienced knitters will enjoy it as a fun option for travel or gift knitting.

Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
