This is a fairly simple, pretty cowl pattern for the beginning lace knitter. The pattern is designed to be instructional and introduce lace knitting to those unfamiliar with it and to make it a little less intimidating. It is knit straight, so it can be made as long as one would like by simply adding more repeats of the lace pattern. Gauge is not critical for this pattern, so I believe one could use a variety of different weight yarns by changing the needle size accordingly. I named this…
This neckwarmer in two sizes carries us through seasonal transitions by providing a chill-chasing layer without bulk. Knit in a crystalline cable-and-lace motif and finished with a knit-on border of lace snowflakes, this piece works up quickly on circular needles, travels well, and makes a beautiful gift.
Worked in the round from the top down, Norden features a simple yet sophisticated lace pattern that widens to become a gently undulating border. It knits up quickly and makes a great little luxury gift.
The Buckhorn Cowl is a cowl pattern featuring both lace and stockinette stitch. It starts with a lace and reverse stockinette stitch pattern and then transitions into several inches of plain stockinette. The perfect pattern for those precious single skeins of yarn in your stash!
This is a lace cowl using a variation on the Frost Flower stitch pattern. It makes an excellent, warm, soft accessory when knit from handspun Angora! The Angora I used was sport weight and you could get beautiful results from a sport weight commercial yarn - something like Knitted Wit or Hazel Knits. Gauge is not important, but I found that I liked the resulting fabric best using size 8 needles (I originally tried size 10). The finished size is approximately 22” x 10”.
