Lace and Stripes Cowl by Brandy Velten

Lace and Stripes Cowl on Ravelry

I hope everyone had a great long weekend. It really doesn’t feel like fall is upon us today in Toronto, but I have a sneaking feeling it will be here before I know it. My mind has been lost in fall for awhile now – dreaming of wearing snuggly sweaters and cozy cowls. I’ve really been loving the big, oversized cowls that I’ve seen popping up on Ravelry. They just seem so perfect to snuggle into while still looking chic and stylish.

So today I’m tossing my own design into the mix with the release of my Lace and Stripes Cowl on Ravelry. Knit with fingering weight yarn, it is great for transitioning into fall without being too bulky. And it is also pretty perfect for using up those left over bits of sock yarn – mix lots of them up to produce a fun and funky cowl, or keep it cool and classy with two contrasting colors.

I’m also offering a special introductory sale – purchase the pattern before midnight EST, Sunday, Sept. 13th and you’ll save 20%! So now you have no excuse to not get started on some fall knitting.

  1. dreaming of cooler temps here, too—-actually, heading to scotland in the morning so I KNOW we’ll have some cool for at least a couple weeks (AND I CAN’T WAIT!!!!). That cowl is stunning….big, cuddly, beautiful!!!!!

    • Oh, I am so jealous! I have been wanting to head to Scotland so badly since watching Outlander. It just looks so spectacular. Have a wonderful trip (and enjoy a scotch for me!).

    • Yes! Think of all the fun colors you could do with unicorn tails. It’s good to know someone else is as obsessed with those things as I am!

    • We are supposed to get a bit of a cold front today and I am really looking forward to it. It has been so hot and humid here that sleeping has not been very fun.
