Free Pattern Friday: Three Color Cowl

February 26, 2016

A few weeks ago we released the pattern for the Wrapped in Lux shawl, but that was just the beginning of Allison's obsession with Lace Lux. Today we have another exciting pattern to share with you guys. Introducing the Three Color Cowl!

Three Color Cowl - Lace Lux Pattern 

Using three colors of Lace Lux held doubled throughout, this glimmering cowl makes quite a statement despite being so easy to knit.

Three Color Cowl on ImagiKnit.com

We did ours in a combination of purple and taupe, but you can colorblock with any variety of colors. Maybe two grays and a pop color? Three shades of pink? An ombre of blues? It's up to you!
