This cowl/capelet has one of the prettiest stitch patterns I’ve seen. It’s worked like a lace, but the increases, instead of yarnovers, are lifted-type increases, so there is all of the texture but none of the holes, which, when the weather turns brisk, one can do without!

It starts with a picot cast on and is worked in the round, with the stitch pattern scaling down to taper around the neckline, and topped with an eyelet and ribbed edge - perfect for threading an optional I-cord drawstring, finished with these charming little leafy knitted pulls.

Versatile - wear snug or slouchy, down around the neck or up over the shoulders.

Pattern is written and also includes a charted version of the stitch pattern.

In four sizes with finished dimensions of: 11” depth, 42 (45, 49, 52)“ bottom circumference. Shown in smallest size on a 36” dress form.

Skills used: Knitted cast on, lifted increases, I-cord (all explained in Glossary
