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.

I'm a grandma who lives alone except for my wonderful dog, Mr. Bingley. I do a lot of knitting for others through my local senior center and knitting guild, and as much knitting for myself and family members as I can. My mother forbade me as a child to mess about with "basket weaving" and such, insisting that as a woman I'd have to work twice as hard to earn half as much. I'm finally giving myself permission to admit to the world that I am creative!View all patterns by designer (1) »
