A tidy picot hem meets smooshy lace in this cozy cowl.

Artichoke Hearts cowl is worked in the round from hem to top, beginning with a provisional cast on for the hemline.
Hem is joined with a 3-needle row of knitting.
The lace pattern (simple enough for a beginning lace knitter) contains decreases made by working 3 stitches together, which are most comfortably worked using a pointy needle.
A sewn bind off is used for an elastic finish.
