Basic Skills Necessary:

  • CO, BO, work in-the-round, increase, decrease

Pattern Description:

I love lace stitches worked in more substantial yarns. The lace stitch in this quick-to-knit cowl produces a pretty scalloped edge. The cowl is worked in-the-round from the top down and all the increasing is worked into the stitch pattern for you.


17.5 sts = 4" over lace pattern.
Look for a yarn that knits to 14 - 16 sts = 4" over St st.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • one size
  • circumference at top edge: 16.5"
  • length: approx 7.5"


  • 130yds heavy worsted weight yarn
  • Sample is shown in Blue Sky Alpacas - Worsted Hand Dyes, 50% royal alpaca, 50% merino wool; 100yds/100g; color #2008 light pink, 2 skeins

You Will Also Need:

  • size 9 (5.5mm) 16" circular needle or size to obtain gauge
  • stitch markers, tapestry needle
