Crimson Leaves Cowl
In honor of my Fall 2018 Knit For Fun Retreat in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, this textured cowl pays homage to the stunning autumn colors of the area. the luxurious yarn is MCN Fingering (80% merino, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon) in a “Crimson Leaves” colorway dyed for the retreat by Wisconsin’s own Sun Valley Fibers.
The simple lace pattern resembles panels of paired leaves. It repeats over 18 stitches and 4 rounds, and is easy to follow once the panels are established. A tidy row of eyelets borders the scalloped cast-on and bind-off edges. I used the Old Norwegian (also known as Twisted German) cast-on and the Sewn bind-off matching top and bottom edges, but you can use the methods of your choice.
