Pattern Description:

I had a similar cowl I made last year. I wore it around my neck, or like a scarf on my head, or pulled forward almost to my eyebrows, or up over my mouth and nose when it was really cold. When I went to knit night I wore it loosely around my throat as an ornament. I needed a cowl in another color and I didn't want to use the same pattern again so I created this pattern. I looked through many books to find a lace that was still dense enough to keep me warm, still open enough to be pretty and have those essential air pockets that add so much to warmth, especially when I pull my coat hood right up over the cowl. I can really put this on in the morning and adjust how I wear it for different temperatures all day long. It's the most versatile piece of winter wear I own.
