Sirkel cowl pattern
This easy wrap is a fun opportunity to pair a beautiful hand painted yarn with a coordinating solid color.
The simple garter stitch lace pattern opens up the fabric and biases naturally, for an interesting parallelogram shape. It’s worked lengthwise on a circular needle to accommodate the large number of stitches.
The scarf version uses just one skein of each color; the generously‐sized wrap uses two skeins of each color.
