This light and lacy cowl is inspired by the granite coast of Maine, where the chilly evenings prompt the wise knitter to keep a stock of quick handknits aroundeven in August! A large number of stitches are initially cast on, but 60% are bound off on the next row, resulting in a looped edge. The simple lace body allows the mottling pattern of the Malabrigo Lace (held doubled) to shine. Loops are also created at the bind off by adding back the stitches that had been removed at the beginning. Many thanks to my to my technical editor, Stephannie Tallent, and to Malabrigo Yarns for their sponsorship of this pattern via the Malabrigo Quickies project.

I’m a lifelong knitter, from a family of knitters, gardeners, seamstresses, and sailors (yes, even the men!) - who also happen to be doctors, scientists, priests, and businesspeople (yes, even the women!). I like to design baby blankets, accessories for children, adults, and the home, and garments for children and adults. You can find my patterns through my indie line here on Craftsy or in a variety of print and online magazines and books. I happily work with local yarn stores, crafters, and indie dyers: please contact me to start a conversation about how we can support each other!
