Crann Darach Cowl

cowl 2Crann Darach, the mighty oak tree; the first of my Christmas presents and patterns. This is a simple cowl  made from a skein of multi-coloured English wool, hand-spun and plied by Lindsay Crafts. Knit on 10mm needles in a chunky to super-chunky yarn, this cowl knits up using a simple old shale lace pattern in a few hours. It is knit flat and the sides are seemed together at the end. Blocking before seeming, gives its distinctive wavy shape.
