Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Provisional cast on

Pattern Description:

A Ghazal, pronounced 'huzzle', is an ancient Persian poem of love. The rhymes repeat in a familiar lilt, much like a sonnet. And the subjects, though always tied to love, are as varied as that most complex of emotions. Unrequited. Romanticized. Illicit.

This cowl's pattern repeats with a flowing rhythm, making it a simple, enjoyable knit. Yet the options for yarn-weight and length, plus its beautiful blending of variegated colorways, give you endless possibilities. Knit it and fall in love over and over again.
