Free Knitting Pattern: Lumi Cowl

Free knitting pattern for a cowl, Lumi Cowl, by April Garwood of Banana Moon Studio

This is “Lumi Cowl.” This knit cowl begins with a bottom border of garter stitch. Next comes a lace panel, and then it is finished with a top border of garter stitch.

It is made with just one skein of Cascade Yarns Spuntaneous Worsted Effects. This single ply wool yarn is SOOOOO soft!

My first version of the Lumi Cowl was made with handspun yarn. You can see this cowl below. I made the “official” version in a commercially-available yarn so that you could see it, and hopefully love it, in a yarn that you could purchase.

I will probably make more of these for gifts! I think next I’ll make one in a solid-colored yarn. If/when I do, I’ll share a picture here so that you can see it in a yarn that will probably show the lace pattern better.

 

Happy stitching,

April
