If you love the look of the Leventry shawl but weren’t wild about the triangular shape, then this cowl is for you! Using the same geometric lace and the same combination of colors and textures, the Leventry Loop is easy and stylish to wear. It also uses significantly less yarn than original shawl, so it’s great for those partial skeins you may have sitting in your stash.
The following skills/stitches are needed to knit this cowl:
- knit/purl in the round
- centered double decreases
- cable cast on (for picot bind off)
To knit the cowl as written, you will need fingering weight yarn in two colors, approximately 175 yds./160 m of color 1 and 190 yds./174 m of color 2. You will also need one stitch marker and a yarn needle to complete the cowl.
The lace edging is both written and charted, and instructions are included for changing the width and length of the cowl.
