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