Thank You Cowl
Knit a cowl to say “Thank you” to someone who has made your life better during the Covid experience. You can knit the entire cowl in the Farrow Rib stitch or personalize your expression of gratitude with a discreet motif adapted from traditional gansey and Danish nightshirt patterns. Give a gold star to recognize a good deed well done, as in the sample or choose one of the other charted motifs: a heart for love, an anchor to represent stability, a tree of life to symbolize the interconnectedness of all beings. Easy-care Adore from Universal Yarn is a round, bouncy, wool/acrylic blend with great stitch definition—the perfect choice for a design that relies on the textural difference between knit and purl stitches. Instructions include three sizes. Designed by Nancy Lekx [email protected]
