  • knit lace (p2tog, yo)

Pattern Description:

The woolen equivalent of a warm, fuzzy snowflake, this versatile cowl is worked up in Shalimar Yarns' Haven, an irresistibly lofty merino/silk blend. The pattern uses a combination of cables and lace to create an overall pattern that is complex in texture, yet surprisingly easy to work. Intended for adults, the cowl can also be worn by children, and was happily modeled by my four-year-old son, Griffin. The pattern is suitable for advanced beginner lace and cable knitters. Please see specific required skills below. Instructions are both written and charted. The pattern has been professionally tech edited to reduce the possibility for error, but if you have questions or believe that you have found an error, please contact me.
