Snows Creek Cowl

Snows Creek Cowl

Snows Creek Cowl employs a simple but interesting pattern to show off a lone skein of gorgeous handspun. The piece can be worn long, draped around the neck, or doubled over for extra warmth. Horizontal garter ridges break up the vertical lines of the lace rib, while adding visual interest. Furthermore, a short vertical pattern repeat means little planning ahead: work until the yarn runs out, or nearly!

The pattern is available as a Ravelry download for $4.50.
