Lorraine is the answer to the question: “What can I do with just 1 skein?” A light weight cowl featuring an easy textured stitch pattern, perfect when you want just a little something around your neck but can still be worn in warmer climates. Instructions are for either Sport or DK-weight yarn. What is extra special about this cowl is that it’s a collaboration between me and my mom, Lorraine Tinkler, who is not only beautifully modeling the cowl but is also the brainchild behind the design.

This is the PDF version of the pattern. After going through the checkout you will receive an email with a downloadable PDF link. If you prefer to purchase through Ravelry, click here.
