Matching mittens and cowl. A novel concept, isn’t it? And it even keeps going with my local grrlfriends theme, since the cowl pattern was designed by Susan.
Pattern: Forest Canopy Cowl, by Susan Lawrence
Ravelry: Pattern page and my Project Page
Yarn: Manos del Uruguay Manos Silk Blend
Needles: 4.5 mm (US 7) and 5.5 mm (US 9)
Modifications: None, but knitted the smaller version as suggested in the pattern (one less pattern repeat)
This is a great pattern – easy lace knitting (I could even knit it at SnB without any errors), quick, and well-written. I really like how she used the larger needles to shape the lower edge. It’s nice and soft and cozy, and of course, is perfect with my mittens.
