Wavy and almost mythically soft, the Narwhal Cowl is an ode to the unicorn of the sea and the rippling icy waters it swims through. The size of this cowl makes it a comfortable one to wear in the office over a simple top or under a coat outdoors during the chillier months. Simple to knit with an easy lace pattern, you can knit a couple of these cowls in no time!
Construction Details The Narwhal Cowl is worked in the round. After working ribbing for the border, a simple four round pattern stitch is repeated. The pattern is written in words and also includes a chart for those who prefer. Pattern gives pointers on how to increase the size of the cowl if desired.
