Alternating stacks of ribbing and lace create a lush fabric to keep you warm all winter and coordinate with the matching Fingerless Mitts and Hats in the Smokestack Collection (see my other listings! Or if you're interested in all 3 patterns, see my listing for the SMOKESTACK COLLECTION E-Book and get all three patterns for $10) The easy-to-memorize lace pattern flows from a ribbed edge and knits up quickly – no cable needle required! Instructions are both written and charted. Worked seamlessly in-the-round from the lower edge up, there are three sizes to choose from.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS NOT A FINISHED ITEM. It's a PDF of a pattern so you can make your own cowls.
BONUS: Pattern includes instructions for THREE sizes!
- Small and Medium - single-layer
- Long, worn as a single long loop or wrapped double for extra warmth
SPECIAL FEATURE: The Medium uses 3 different needle sizes to create a tapered shape – close and cozy at your chin and wider at the lower edge for extra coverage to fight the chilly winds. On especially wintry days, you can pull it up as a hood to keep your ears warm!
