Ridged Lace Cowl

Pattern: Ridged Lace Cowl (<---click)
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Alpaca and Silk DK - Cream Colorway
Needles: Size 8 (???)

I'll find the info and update the blog in the next couple of days!

I'm on a cowl kick!!! I just love them! I can wear them at the office on those chilly February days and have it look like at accent piece!

A closer look!
And even closer!!
The yarn is wonderful and so soft. However, it quickly looses its shape. I knitted the cowl quite a bit shorter than the pattern called for. I wished that both edges could have been the same but I was not able to do that. I even started a second cowl with the intention of crochets the ripple edge and because of the increases and decreases in the knitting, that just did not work either.

I'm still quite happy with it!

I've been promised pictures of last weekend by the end of the week. Wait till you see what my daughter's surprised me with.

Happy Knitting!


  1. How neat! Maybe if I ever get through these hot flashes....I could wear one in the winter. Ha!

  2. That's very pretty! You're starting to make me think about cowls...you know that, don't you?? I think th two edges look pretty well-matched in the first photo, which is how most people will be seeing it, anyway.
