Free Pattern!

I had planned to make my kid sister a pair of breathtaking gloves for Giftmas this year but the crunch hit me and I chose a more manageable project for plane-knitting. It’s a simple cowl with a classic lace pattern that requires nothing more complex that counting to 6.

Enjoy.

Miriam’s Cowl

Ravel it!

Size: Approx. 22″ circumference, unblocked, 13″ height

Materials: Madeline Tosh Worsted, [100% Superwash Merino Wool, 100g/225yd] 1 skein (pictured in Baltic colorway)

Needles: Size US #8/ 5mm DPN or size necessary to achieve gauge

Gauge: 5sts/ 1 inch

CO 108 sts, divided evenly onto three DPNs. (36 sts per needle) join for working in the round and place marker for beginning of the round. K all sts first round. P all sts second round. Begin feather and fan pattern:

Round 1-3: K all sts

Round 4: *k2tog 3 times, (yo,k1) six times, k2tog 3 times* repeat to end of round.

Repeat rounds 1-4 until work measures 12.5″ ending on a round 3.

Purl one round, knit one round, BO loosely. I used the following method:

*K2tog TBL, sl st back to left needle* repeat until last st remains. If working in the round: Pick up a loop from first BO st and work it together with the last st to avoid a gap. Break yarn, pull through last loop.

Finishing: Weave in ends. Steam lightly with an iron on the wool setting, if desired.
