What was your inspiration?
I wanted something to keep my neck warm, and while I love scarves ~ sometimes they just are not the right accessory. Cowls keep me warm without falling off or getting in my way.
What are you most proud of?
The stitch pattern is a vintage one that I absolutely love! Working it into this cowl design seemed the perfect use for it.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This cowl makes a great introduction to knitting in the round, along with an openwork/lace stitch pattern. The stitch pattern is easy to memorize too.
