Pattern Description:

Lightweight, chic, and ultra-feminine, the Genevieve Cowl looks and feels like a luxurious treat. Knit in the round with not a seam in sight and featuring an airy stitch pattern, it is like a downy plush cloud. Stretchy, voluminous, and generously sized, it has a beautiful drape, and can be looped around your neck twice for extra warmth. Pamper yourself or a loved one with a Genevieve during the colder months or at any time of the year.

"Genevieve" is ideally suited for advanced beginners looking for a circularly knit and simple lace pattern that knits up fairly quickly. Featuring a flowing meditative design, and a very rewarding finished object, it will also be enjoyed by more experienced knitters.
