This cowl uses an old German stitch pattern that I find extremely beautiful – I just had to use it! Doesn’t it look gorgeous in the silky, shiny yarn from Switzerland? I made the cowl for my father’s cousin Marion. I remember so many happy hours spent at her house on my holidays as a kid that I want to thank her for.
The cowl is knit as a long scarf and then joined or seamed.
