Free pattern Friday: Botanical Cowl

The Botanical Cowl by Megan Goodacre is a lovely springtime project ideal for featuring a special skein of hand-dyed or luxury blend yarn. It uses an airy double-eyelet pattern that provides beautiful drape and visual interest, and is edged by 4/4 ribbing. Instructions are provided for either a single or double loop size.  The cowl uses 247 – 274 m of fingering or sport weight yarn and the designer recommends Handmaiden Fine Yarn Sea Silk or Quince and Co. Tern.  We also think this would be gorgeous in Tanis Fiber Arts Red Label Cashmere/Silk Single, SweetGeorgia Yarns Merino Silk Fine, or Madelinetosh Pashmina.

    Thank you for the lovely pattern. Unfortunately I am on Social Security income , like many others, and my budget cannot afford the beautiful yarns you are showing.
    Thanks anyway.
