Angel Wings Cowl

from By Hand, With Heart
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Angel Wings Cowl
Angel Wings Cowl

Angel Wings Cowl

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit in the round
  • read a chart or directions for a multiple repeat
  • understand lace-knitting

Pattern Description:

Cowls are all the rage since they're so much easier to wear than a scarf. For a bit of warmth ... a bit of class ... a bit of sophistication make this lovely lace cowl in the round for faster knitting.

The lace pattern is easy to learn (both charted and written directions) and since you're knitting in the round, you always have it facing out.

The sample is made in a Cashmere/Silk/Merino blend from Spring Gate Farms in Barboursville, VA, but any fingering weight will work for this cowl. A tonal from Hazel Knits would be glorious!


4sts x 6rnds = 1" stockinette (unblocked)

  • approx. 150 yards of fingering weight -- sample used a cashmere (50%), silk (25%), merino (25%) blend
