Seashell Cowl Pattern (PDF) - Knitting Pattern by Phibersmith Designs
Invoking those treasured beach finds, this “seashell” features a truly unique structure. Built in a seamless spiral, it is organically and beautifully asymmetrical. The touch of lace and ruffling finish it off with flair. The yarn is a unique blend of sheep’s wool and the softest, coziest alpaca, lovingly raised near Belwood, Ontario. This one is a keeper for sure. (Pull it over your head – can you hear the ocean?)
Pattern includes complete written instructions, as well as charts for lace ruffle section. One size.
The cowl is worked seamlessly by picking up stitches along an edge, but could be worked flat and seamed as an alternate construction.
