I’ve been thinking and writing a lot in the new year about knitting things for ourselves and have the feeling that after the rush of the holidays we could all use a little yarny comfort that we actually get to keep and wear ourselves.
Here’s a project that fills the desire for more cowl knitting projects that so many of you seem to have and also offers a delight to the knitter and the wearer — though let’s hope this time that’s the same person!
The Chandelle Cowl by Megan Goodacre has an interesting textured lace pattern and is worked in a lovely wool/cashmere blend you’re sure to enjoy knitting with and wearing. The project is worked flat from a provisional cast on and grafted at the end, making it easy for people who aren’t comfortable knitting in the round.
The pattern runs $5 and is available for immediate download.
