Cowls are great alternatives to scarves, keeping your neck and shoulders warm without dangling scarf ends to get in your way. This beautiful intermediate lace pattern gives an organic feel in a thick/thin or handspun yarn, or a crisp look in a smooth yarn. It’s a great project for a luxury yarn, since the yardage required is minimal.
