Join me for a new knit-along starting 20th September 2012!
Simply join the Feather Lace Cowl KAL group on Ravelry.
Feather Lace Cowl is worked in the round, in Ostrich Plumes stitch, which is easier to knit than it looks – you only work the lace pattern every 4th round, the remaining rounds being plain stockinette stitch rounds. The cowl is finished with flexible BO edging. The instructions are written for aran/ worsted weight yarn, but they can be easily modified for different weight yarns, from very light to chunky – there is more information on how to do it in the last section of the pattern.
Knitting in the round, provisional CO and working a lace pattern. You can download Crochet Provisional CO Tutorial here.
Circumference: 99 cm/ 39 in
Height: approx 25.5 cm / 10 in
(You can easily change the size by working a different number of pattern repeats.)
300 metres/ 330 yards of aran/ worsted/ 10 ply smooth wool or wool blend with good stitch definition that blocks well.
1 pattern repeat (16 sts x 32 rows) in Ostrich Plumes st, with main needle and after blocking = 11 cm (width) x approx 15 cm (height).
