This lace cowl is a great way to learn basic lace techniques.

 

Requirements:

Students should be comfortable with basic knitting (knit, purl) 

Materials:

·      Barred Scallop Cowl by Shannon Dunbabin (Cascade Yarns)

·      Worsted Weight Yarn- 220 yds

·      US 9 circular needle. Length of cord depends on technique you prefer to use.  16” is recommended in the pattern, but longer cord lengths (32”-47”) can work if the magic loop technique is used. A 24” cable is also possible, but may be more difficult at the start than other lengths.

o   Pattern was designed for Cascade Yarn Casablanca and is ideal for showing off the long color changes, but any worsted weight yarn will work

o   Other possibilities: Dream in Color Classy, Noro Silk      Garden, Malabrigo Worsted, etc

Useful to have:

·      crochet cotton, thread, or dental floss (for lifelines)

·      darning needle (for threading lifeline and weaving in ends)

·      stitch marker (to mark start of round)
