BLTN part 2: Quick Knit Cowl Pattern

Last week I showed you the first of the 'better late than never' projects I finished during the busy festive period, and which didn't make it to the blog for various reasons. Today I have another, and it's not just an FO, but a new pattern which ended up being published (very quietly) in December.

I'd been chatting to someone who wanted to give lace knitting a go, but didn't know where to start. She wanted a simple pattern which was easy to follow and which would knit up quickly but could be made with something that would feel scrumptious - without raiding the bank. My solution was to come up with this Quick Knit Lace Cowl.

I used deliciously sparkly Galaxie, by Bergere de France in a festive red "Carmine" (which was intended to be used for something else - whoops!). The yarn is Acrylic/ Wool/ Polyester and feels incredibly soft - perfect for wearing around the face and neck.

The pattern is suitable for knitters who are able to knit in the round and would like to try something a little more challenging than knits and purls, but which is still quite straightforward. Both written and charted instructions are included and the chart is especially easy to follow - as this design includes only a basic increase (yo) and decrease (sk2p) and the pattern "lines up" which means it's easy to tell whether you're following it properly.

The cowl knits up quickly on 8mm needles and takes just 3 balls (around £10 in total). The PDF is available to purchase exclusively at Love Knitting, and the details are listed in the Ravelry database - I love to see what you  make from my patterns, so please do link your WIP and FO project notes there.
