The Lara cowl/snood is completely seamless which gives great versatility.
Simply turn inside-out and fold back the cables for a more textured effect created by the combination of reverse side of the cables, garter and reverse stocking stitch. Play around with folding, reversing and turning for a wide variety of looks.
And if you are lucky enough to be skinny...shimmy into the cowl and wear as a skirt with thick tights and boots.
EXTRA instructions are also included for knitting a 'Lara' CAPELET and a 'Lara. SCARF
full instructions on how to do a provisional cast on and grafting are included
This project is suitable for the intermediate knitter.
10sts 12 rows in 4inches/10cm stocking stitch on 10mm neeedles
