February is proving to be a busy month already with another one of my patterns published. This time it is Cozette - a cowl with a difference - and you can find it in the Best of British issue of Knit Now, issue 44.
The idea for this cowl came to me when I was swatching lace patterns and trying to make a reversible pattern that looked good on both sides. I wanted something warm and pretty, with no 'wrong' side that shows when the cowl is wrapped around my neck.
Cozette has a simple repeating lace pattern that is easy to learn and it looks the same on both sides so there is no 'wrong' side to show when wrapped around your neck. It also has a ribbed cuff with button closures. The buttons and reversible lace means that it can be worn draped long around your neck, or wrapped up cozily to be very snug. It can even be worn open like a scarf or twisted before buttoning to be an infinity cowl.
I used 2 skeins of Eden Cottage Yarns Langdale Aran in Rambling Rose to make the cowl. I love this yarn, such pretty colours to choose from and the yarn is warm and smooshy. It is even dyed locally in West Yorkshire. This sample was knit by my good friend Sharon.
I am looking forward to getting this sample back to wear next winter. I am also coveting some matching mittens and hat. I think a coordinating set would look great and be really snug!
