PATTERN DETAILS

t's a cowl pattern which is knitted forth and back, and then the two ends are grafted. The lace pattern itself uses only basic stitches, but in my personal experience requires lots of attention. The number of stitches differs on right side rows and wrong side rows, only to confuse us even more. I strongly recommend using life lines on this one. Play with various yarns and needle sizes, as well as width and length to create different effects. I made it twice. For the first time - with lace yarn. It almost looked like jewelry rather than clothing. The second one I made in a luxurious combination of sil and mohair for a warm, soft and fluffy winter cowl. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit and purl yarn over knit 2 together ssk/skp - left slanting dcrease purl 2 together purl 2 together through the back loop GAUGE 16.5 sts x 15 rows = 10x10 cm (4x4 in). SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 30 cm (11 3/4 in) wide by 140 cm (55 in) long before grafting

I have been knitting and crocheting since being a child. Very early I started tweaking the patterns or improvising, but it's only in the past few years that I started feeling I have something to share with the rest of the knitting and crocheting community.
