I am celebrating Spring with a new pattern. Do you remember to this project?
Frank ochre is my favourite color in Malabrigo palette. I purchased one skein Mal Lace in this color from months ago and kept searching for the perfect project for weeks. But couldn't find the ONE, so I created my own pattern.
This color called me to knit something with leaves... with lacy-roundish leaves. I loved playing with knit and purl stitches to get a pattern which is really decorative on both sides. Who doesn't like when her cowl looks nice on both sides and wearable inside out too?
I wanted to add something eye-catching too. This is how these leaf-tassels came from. The tassels are just tied loosely around the wrap or weaved into the lace. And this is the detail what everyone notes!
Name: Ochre Leaves Cowl
Skill level: intermediate
Materials and notions:
- appr. 430 meters / 470 yards lace wool yarn. Sample uses Malabrigo Lace [2 ply; 100% Baby Merino Wool; 430 meters (470 yards) / 50 grams] in Frank Ochre
- circular knitting needles in size 4 mm/US 6 80 cm/32” length
- one pair of dpns in size 4 mm/US 6 (for tassels)
- tapestry needle to weave the ends and stitch marker (optional)
This is not a gauge critical project, may work with chunkier yarns too and adjustable to any length and width.
And the best thing that the pattern has been released for free, so add it to your Ravelry library and please don't forget to favourite or queue it in return :)
Wishing you joyful knitting and happy Spring!
