Kira K Designs is a line of original knitting and crochet patterns with a streamlined and eminently wearable aesthetic. Research on historical clothing, which Kira did during her former career as a theatrical costume designer, is a strong influence on her design sense, and many patterns reference styles from the 1920s through the 1960s. Kira's family history of Danish Modern furniture design is also an important influence on her patterns, resulting in garments and accessories with clean lines and intriguing details that are both interesting to make and easy to wear.

Cowls are great alternatives to scarves, keeping your neck and shoulders warm without dangling scarf ends to get in your way. This beautiful intermediate lace pattern gives an organic feel in a thick/thin or handspun yarn, or a crisp look in a smooth yarn. It's a great project for a luxury yarn, since the yardage required is minimal. The stitch pattern is both written out and charted.
