This surprisingly simple cowl pairs lace and color to create a cheerful look. To keep things light and easy, the pattern uses slipped stitches to turn basic stripes into something more interesting. There’s no stranded colorwork to weigh things down. Knit with buttery soft cotton, the cowl is a great accessory for mild weather. The pattern includes instructions to knit a short, deep cowl as shown or a longer, skinnier cowl that can be looped around the neck twice.
