"Winter whispers in the wind as maple leaves fall around me, creating a carpet of fire ready to soothe the snow. " The Havelock Cowl is the perfect cozy accessory to wear on a magical walk in an autumn wonderland. Its generous circumference can be worn over the shoulders, an ideal layer over a fall coat or as that extra bit of warmth in a drafty house. The interesting peaked lace edging pops in chunky tonal yarn, while architectural ribbing provides structure and warmth to the body of the cowl. Havelock is worked in the round from the bottom up with no finishing. Instructions are given for four bust size ranges and the cowl circumference can easily be adjusted by adding or subtracting ten stitches. Lace instructions are provided in written and charted format. Havelock Cowl is a fun knit for the experience and newer lace knitter. It's practical shape and unique lace edging will make it a staple layer in your cold weather wardrobe!

I have been artistic all my life, but no medium has obsessed me more than knitting. I live with my needles in hand! After leaving a career in social work, I decided to make fiber art central in my life. I got started in the fiber craft industry managing Mary Maxim Boutique in Toronto and as a Designer Assistant for Americo Original. In May 2012, I moved to Guelph, Ontario to further pursue an artistic life. As a newer indie designer, I am building my brand, Ash Kearns Handknitting and publishing regularly. I currently display my designs and teach regularly in Guelph, Ontario at All Strung Out Fine Yarns.
