We had just three days in Paris and we arrived in the rain, but we didn’t care. After all, there were galleries, cafes, and gothic cathedrals to visit!
This cowl is designed to evoke my memories of that incredible visit: the intricate gothic architecture and the rain, that feeling of silvery skies and sharp spring winds. You’ll be warm and stylish in this bold lace cowl – the way I wish I’d felt!
Knit in a worsted weight yarn, you’ll find the stitch patterns bold and satisfying to work up. There are directions for a smaller neck warmer that you can tuck under a jacket without bulk as well as for a double loop cowl. Both are knit in the round from the bottom up. Whether you like charts or written instructions, this pattern has you covered. The last page even contains a handy checklist to help you keep track of which round you are working for each of the two stitch patterns.
