Collins Brook Cowl
Named after the brook that zig-zags behind my home in Maine, Collins Brook Cowl is a versatile worsted-weight cowl pattern that is knit in the round and features an easy zig-zag lace stitch pattern. With instructions for either a long version (that can be wrapped around the neck twice) or a short version (featuring an optional button closure), this pattern allows you to decide which style cowl you prefer to wear.
Never done any kind of lace work before? This pattern is a great choice for lace newbies and provides a good introduction into a couple of the most basic techniques that you’ll find with lace work.
