Deco Leaf Cowl

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • cast on
  • knit stitch
  • purl stitch
  • bind off

Pattern Description:

The bold geometric lines of the leaf and vine pattern used for this cozy/cowl give it an art deco feel. If women wore cowls in the 30's and 40's I imagine they might look like this one. Make this pattern in the cozy size (small/medium), shown on the last page, to fit close around your neck or make it in the cowl size (large/extra large), shown below on page two, for more drape. The stitch pattern takes on a beautiful lacey look when knit in sock weight or fingering weight yarn, (shown above in size small/medium) and is great for wearing indoors or in warmer climates. It takes a bit longer to knit, but is worth the effort!
