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.
