Lace + ribbing = a beautiful springy cowl! I just finished my project in a cowl-along I’ve been knitting in recent week. I intentionally didn’t block it, being very pleased with the three dimensional waffled surface the merino lace yarn creates with the ribbed pattern & yarn-overs.
It is a very easy modification of Double Cappuccino Legwarmers , and I chose to work the ribbed lace with really big 6mm needles for a frothy open look, so it grew in length fast, therefore naturally the patterning was easy enough that I knit it entirely while walking up on the ridge over the last week!
So downy soft, yet athletic from the ribbing, that I plan to eventually give it to a certain dancer, hoping it won’t fly off in the middle of her leaping across the stage, I planned this to go with her mostly black dance wardrobe of course!
This is the first of my start on gift knitting, for the holiday swiftly on its way. So if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to the ridge for a hike while casting on for another !
