it seems that lace cowls were my end-all-be-all gift to give for christmas this past year.  they were great stash-busters and left me wishing I had kept one for myself!  I ended up doing several using the same general construction w/ either cables, lace, or both.  Now that I finally have internet back, I wanted to post my favorite, made with Lion Brand Amazing:




I can post a pattern if anyone wants it....  see below for pattern
it was super easy and took about a day to do.  I <3 instant gratification knitting  Smiley

i doubled the yarn (lion brand amazing, colorway: wildflowers; i bought 2 skeins, there will be about 1/3 of each leftover i think) and used US 10 needles:
CO 89 sts (i don't remember the exact amount of CO sts, but i know there was 8 repeats of the shell lace around, so i'm going to say 89 from the shell lace pattern below)
1 1/2 of 2x2 ribbing
shell lace pattern for 3 repeats, i found that i liked this one the most from one of Lion Brand's free patterns (shrug).
1 1/2 of 2x2 ribbing
cast off all sts.
i told ya it was easy!  Wink

shell lace (multiple of 11 sts + 1)
Row 1 (WS) and all WS Rows: Purl.
Row 2: K2 tog, k5, yo, k1, yo, k2, sl 1, k2 tog, psso; rep from end last repeat ssk.
Row 4: K2 tog, k4, yo, k3, yo, k1, sl 1, k2 tog, psso; rep from end last repeat ssk.
Row 6: K2 tog, k3,yo, k5, yo, sl 1, k2 tog, psso; rep from end last repeat ssk.
Row 8: K2 tog, k2, yo, k1, yo,k5, sl 1, k2 tog, psso; rep from end last repeat ssk.
Row 10: K2 tog, k1, yo, k3, yo, k4, sl 1, k2 tog, psso; rep from end last repeat ssk.
Row 12: K2 tog, * yo, k5, yo, k3, sl 1, k2 tog, psso; rep from * end last repeat ssk.

That's gorgeous! And you're right, they're great presents and stash busters! I hope they were well received? I would love to see a pattern!

I agree with PG, I too would like a pattern.

Your cowl is beautiful - the colour variegation makes it looks so inviting.

I've never knit a cowl before, but I'm hoping a cowl would replace a scarf even though the winter weather in Canada can be vicious at times.
What I'm trying to say is that a cowl - especially one as pretty as yours - does not look cold-resistant enough to do the job.

Thanks in advance,

 thanks you guys, i posted the pattern above.  And, Jane2, it was actually pretty warm b/c the yarn is doubled and the fiber content is about 1/2 wool.

Thanks for your answer - even though I am late getting back to you.
We've just had 10 days 2 weeks of spring-like weather, so I wasn't looking to knit anything warm. (Easter weekend is forecast to be 17 degrees!)

And thank you for the pattern - I am going to print it for use in the fall.

Is this knitted in the round or is it a flat piece connected.  I am just confused.

yes, i forgot to add that to the pattern, sorry!!  the cast-on sts are joined (you can add a marker as well to mark the start of the rounds) and then you can proceed with the pattern.
