Clairmore is a cowl and a shawlette - it’s a cowlette. It gives you the lovely drape of a small shawlette to protect you from chilly days, with the practicality of a cowl that isn’t going anywhere - no shawl pins needed. Perfect for that luxurious one skein of DK yarn, like the delicious merino/cashmere/nylon blend of Anzula Cricket.
The Clairmore Cowlette is worked flat at first and then in the round. The instructions are given in written and charted format. The lovely feather & fan variation is easy enough even for a lace beginner. Using only 250 yards of DK yarn, this is a great first step into lace and the world of shawls and cowls, but interesting enough for the advanced knitter as well.
