Cowl Season: Lake Street Cowl

Lake Street Cowl

Our last cowl to highlight this year is the Lake Street Cowl, designed by our very own Katelyn Cowan. An incredibly easy to knit, easy to wear cowl, that is a perfect holiday gift idea. It’s lightweight, warm and will pull together any outfit. This cowl is a great way to sample a beautiful, luxurious yarn. Best of all, you’ll be weaving in the ends after just a couple of hours!

The cowl shown above is knit using Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Chunky in Granite. Misti Alpaca is 100% baby alpaca. Soft and lofty, it’s the perfect shield from the chilly bay breezes. For a twist on this pattern, try using a solid color and adding a strand of Kidsilk Haze Glamour or Kid Paillettes for a little sparkle here and there.

The pattern is available with the purchase of 1 skein of Misti Alpaca Chunky (solid colors) or Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Chunky. If you’re ordering from us online, please mention that you would like us to include the Lake Street Cowl pattern in the “Special Instructions” section at check out.
