Fast yet interesting like the Luge run, bold twisty cables run spiralling against bands of large snowflake lace. The sort of cowl you’ll want to snuggle into on a chill winter’s day to protect against the Arctic wind.
The cowl has two versions, standard loop & a deeper shaped one and is easily customised for size depending on choice of yarn and number of repeats. It is worked in the round, has an easy lace pattern including dropped stitches. The 8 row repeat is easy to memorise and, using chunky yarn, can be easily knitted in a couple of evenings or a weekend. There are also wristers (wrist warmers / fingerless mitts) in a similar but not identical pattern. Yarn: chunky (super bulky) weight. A thinner yarn can be used by adjusting CO sts & rows. SKILLS NEEDED: knitting in round, cabling, lace knitting, dropped sts, decreasing in pattern (shaped cowl).
The detailed instructions are fully written as well as charted throughout & have been tested & professionally edited.
