Pattern Description:

Very delicate, lightweight and warm at the same time.

I wanted to knit a cowl with a hood in order to have both accessories in one, this is an improved and more sophisticated version of the balaclava my Mum used to make me wear as a child in winter.

The lace pattern is very easy to knit and this yarn wonderfully soft and lovely to work with.
