Spring Awakening Cowl

Anybody else out there seriously ready for spring?

I don't know about you, but I am aching for more sunshine, budding trees and green grass... not to mention slightly warmer temperatures. Unfortunately, before the loveliness of that season moves in, the more finicky part comes first... March.

There is a reason they say that March comes in like a lion. And here to help you weather those chilly, windy and usually wet days is a new pattern.

The Spring Awakening Cowl is a cozy spring accessory. It is knit straight, width-wise on circular needles, with a garter stitch edge on the top and bottom edges of the cowl.

The body of the cowl is knit in a “leaves of grass” stitch pattern with a leaf motif on one side edge. A button hole (for mother of pearl shell buttons) sits at the bottom of each of the stems on the leaf motif edge.

The cowl is knit using (less than) one skein of Three Irish Girls’ Wexford Merino Silk yarn, which feels soft and warm around one’s neck to keep out the biting winds of March and April, without feeling overheated, scratchy or bulky.

The leaves of grass stitch pattern, leaf motif and soft blended hues in the Maura color- way hint that winter is coming to an end and spring is making its arrival. Pattern includes written and chart instructions.
