This light, lacy cowl is perfect for early spring, when you want something that looks a little delicate but still delivers the warmth and coziness you crave. This is a laceweight version of my bulked-up “Sweetgum Cowl” , and can be worn long and loose or wrapped double for extra warmth.

I knit this up with just 2 ounces of handspun Hello Yarn Polwarth/Silk in “Kitsune” (the December 2011 Fiber Club fiber). I am so in love with this colorway.

I mean seriously .

I spun 2 ounces up into 362 yards of laceweight singles. The colors were so yummy, I knew I wanted to preserve those long delicious repeats, which is why I kept it as singles. I think this simple lace pattern highlights the delicious color shifts.

Aren’t the zigzags fun?

The pattern took me just 350 yards of my handspun. I think Malabrigo laceweight would make a nice commercial substitute.

The pattern inclues both charted and written directions, and is available as a free download on Ravelry here.

I hope you love it!

  1. Love this pattern and the original one you knit out of handspun. I just started with a drop spindle last Friday – may take me awhile to get to a point that I will have something to knit this pattern out of 🙂

  2. Gorgeous! I have a skein (okay, more like 3 or 4) of Malabrigo laceweight that’s been kicking around in my stash. I think this is what one of those babies will become!
