The stitch motif of this cowl swirls around the neck, like the wind and rain of a tempest. This lace cowl is knitted in the round. This cowl can also be worn as a wimple if desired, or shortened for a smaller cowl.

The example above was knit in Knit Picks alpaca cloud, below was knit with Knit Picks shadow.

Carol Stole

I take part in the bi-annual Ravelry Worldwide Shawl Exchange (RWSE). This year my partner inspired me to design a shawl and here it is.
Traditional Estonian lace stitches are used to create this lacey stole. This rectangular stole begins with a provisional CO and is knit in both directions. Side edging is knit as part of the main pattern and completes the ends using the knitted on edging technique. Beads are used in the last stitch motif and NUPPs can be substituted in place of beads.

The pattern is available for sale here, through Knit Picks IDP.
