Sometimes my designs are inspired by fashion or nature or an idea or problem I want to solve, but sometimes, they are the simple result of harmony between yarn and hook--this cowl is such a design. The quiet undulating texture and soft scalloped edges developed organically as I worked. The cowl is crocheted in one piece in the round in a simple, easy-to-memorize stitch pattern. I wear this cowl nearly every day. GAUGE 17 sts and 14 Rows = 4" in pattern stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Cowl measures 18" (46cm) around and 8" (20cm) tall.
