new crochet pattern - feathers and fans cowl by kim miller.

Feathers and Fans Cowl by Kim Miller

Feathers and Fans Cowl by Kim Miller

Skill Level: Intermediate

Light and airy, this knit look cowl is the perfect project to use up that one special ball of lace weight luxury yarn. 

This crochet pattern calls for 1 ball 1 ball of Knit Picks® Aloft Super Kid Mohair Yarn [25 g (0.88 oz)/400 meters (246 yds) per ball 72% Super Kid Mohair 25% Silk] or comparable yarn, a 4.00 mm (G) crochet hook and a 3.50 mm (E) crochet hook. The cowl is worked in one piece from the bottom up. The completed cowl measures 25.4 cm (10”) wide and 22.9 cm (9”) in length. Please note that the size is approximate and will be affected by the gauge and the brand of wool.

This crochet pattern calls for the following stitches and techniques: Slip stitch, single crochet, double crochet, front post double crochet and back post double crochet. Although the pattern calls for simple crochet stitches, I've marked it as intermediate because of the type of yarn required.
