This versatile cowl can add a little warmth on cool days while about town or working in your garden. There is enough lace to create a pleasing knitting experience while still being a quick knit (which makes it great for gifting).
The cowl is knit from the bottom up starting with a shell edging that creates a scallop reminiscent of tree roots. Knits and purls create texture for the tree trunk and basic lace is used to create leaves and the effect of light filtering through the crown of the tree. A nice garter stitch edging finishes the piece for a clean look around the throat.
It is important to me that patterns can be used in many different ways and I designed this motif with endless possibilities in mind. The pattern is both charted and written. The cowl can be reversible and modified to fit the knitter’s needs. More repeats can be added to make a loose cowl, or needles and yarn can be changed to give a different look!
