This pattern contains both written and charted instructions as well as a blocking schematic. The lace patterning on this cowl occurs every row for 4 rows and then there are solid rows of purl or knit stitches in between each lace pattern set.

Due to the nature of digital downloads, this pattern is nonrefundable, please ask any questions before purchase.
