A Lace Cowl // by Emily Wood
Arrows of stockinette stitch soar through patches of lace in this cozy accessory. The cowl, which is worked in the round and offered in two sizes, becomes a delicate luxury of texture and warmth to wrap around one's neck.

pattern notes: This cowl is worked in the round on circular needles. Ribbing frames a lacey diamond motif in the center of the cowl. The circumference of the cowl can easily be adjusted by casting on more or fewer stitches as long as the total stitch count is a multiple of twelve. The Diamond Lace pattern is both written (see Stitches Used) and charted (p 3) for your preference.
