Pattern Description:

The Spring Awakening Cowl is a cozy cool weather accessory. It is knit straight, width-wise on circular needles, with a garter stitch edge on the top and bottom edges of the cowl. The body of the cowl is knit in a "leaves of grass" stitch pattern with a leaf motif on one side edge. A button hole (for mother of pearl shell buttons) sits at the bottom of each of the stems on the leaf motif edge.

The cowl is knit using (less than) one skein of Three Irish Girls' Wexford Merino Silk yarn, which feels soft and warm around one's neck to keep out the biting winds of March and April, without feeling overheated, scratchy or bulky. The leaves of grass stitch pattern, leaf motif and soft blended hues in the Maura color- way hint that winter is coming to an end and spring is making its arrival. Pattern includes written and chart instructions.
