Spring Willow Spring Willow Cowl on Leapfrogger Statue
Spring Willow Spring Willow detail

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit and purl
  • double-knitting experience helpful

Pattern Description:

This is a double-knit lace cowl in luscious Anzula Dreamy superwash merino/cashmere/silk yarn. It has a really nice drape for a double-knit piece, and the combination of lace and two layers makes it an ideal 3-season garment. As with all my patterns, every technique you'll need is explained with pictures, when possible. Double-knit lace is surprisingly easy to achieve, and you'll soon find yourself cruising through this pattern in ample time to have it ready for the Fall and early Winter that it's so well suited for. And even if it may not be best worn in the coldest midwinter, it can make a reappearance alongside its namesake as you begin to see the spring greens and new-growth browns that the colors were chosen to represent.
