Collins Brook Cowl


Named after the brook that zig-zags behind my home in Maine, Collins Brook Cowl is a versatile worsted-weight cowl pattern that is knit in the round and features an easy zig-zag lace stitch pattern . With instructions for either a long version (that can be wrapped around the neck twice) or a short version (featuring an optional button closure), this pattern allows you to decide which style cowl you prefer to wear.Never done any kind of lace work before? This pattern is a great choice for lace newbies and provides a good introduction into a couple of the most basic techniques that you’ll find with lace work.
