Seventh Wave Cowl
Perfect for summer walks along the beach, the Seventh Wave Cowl is designed to be light and breezy, worn loose or wrapped a couple of times around the neck for added warmth against the wind. A simple lace chevron pattern, suitable for beginning lace knitters, mimics the shape and shadows of gentle waves. The bottom “wave” is doubled in size to represent the seventh wave often purported to be larger than all the rest. This also helps to visually anchor the bottom of the cowl.
The cowl is knit flat with a provisional cast on and then grafted together at the end. It can also be knitted as a long scarf if you prefer. The lace pattern is easy to memorize and very adaptable; just add extra repeats to make the cowl wider or longer. Knit less repeats for a smaller cowl.
