I wrote the pattern for this lovely lace cowl 8 years ago, and it needed a brushing up. This is one of many patterns that I polish up to reflect my recent pattern writing style. Don’t worry though…it still has a lot of the original thumbprint. This lovely scarf can be worn as a cowl or a stole. Two layers of lace fans add to the elegance of this design.

It’s so easy to dress this up by adding a flowered clip or brooch. I especially love the technique of weaving a narrow or wide and fluffy ribbon through the arch row. This is a lovely effect when wearing it as a stole.

want a solid color. This looks beautiful in Mandala and it is a good replacement.
