Meringue Cowl 2nd Edition | Free pattern for Kids & Adult
|October 22, 2015||Filled under Free patterns, Patterns|
If talking about last minute gifts… I do remember how I was happy to be timely with knitted cowl for my dear friend, but to write a pattern and to release it two days later (read December, 19th) was definitely a magic and challenge for me ;o)
… but most exciting thing is that this pattern was downloaded 230,635 times so far… WOW, I am speechless and so grateful for your interest in my work!
So I decided to pick this pattern and update it to match my current style.
What was changed? First of all, yarn which was used in 2011 is discontinued already. New sample was made with my absolute favorite wool and silk blend by Cascade Yarns Venezia Sport! Treat yourself and yours with cowl, scarf or whatever you can think off made with this fabulous and oh so luxury yarn!
Next, new photos! I hope I am better with presentation now ;o). Below are old photo:
Third, written instructions. Instructions are different and much more clear. They come with tons of tips and have more details. Plus technical pages, tables, tutorials.
Fourth, stich diagrams for crochet band and finishing edging! Diagrams are all new (there were no diagrams in original pattern) and will make this pattern even more user friendly! So, below are details and link to download this old-new pattern.
Meringue Knitted Cowl with Crocheted Details
Lightweight and delicate as meringue dessert, this cowl makes most enjoyable treat. Luxurious and chic, versatile and playful, this delicacy of a cowl is hand-knitted in wool and silk blend yarn. The cowl features an airy brioche stitch pattern and adorned with crocheted band. Stretchy, cozy, and generously sized, it has a beautiful drape, and can be looped around your neck twice for extra warmth.
Treat yourself of a loved ones to this delightful winter! Opt for bamboo or cotton blends for fall and spring accessory.
