Kristen TenDyke - Royal Lattice Cowl

  Royal Lattice Cowl  
  I have many single-skeins of beautiful yarns in my stash. Lately I've been challenging myself to come up with ways of using them. This elegantly soft cowl is what I came up with to use one hank of Lisa Souza's lovely cashmere Lhasa yarn.

The cowl begins with a provisional cast on, and is worked in a fun, twisted pattern that increases and decreases to shape the side edges to match the stitch pattern. It is joined by working the cast on edge together with the live stitches, either with the three-needle bind off, or grafting—your choice.
