One of the pleasures of the Indie Design Gift-a-long is taking time off from “work” knitting to knit other designers’ creations for my Christmas gifting. My first FO for GAL2015 is Rian Cowl by Loraine Birchall.

This super quick knit has an easy to memorize lace pattern, which is worked every other round. Loraine did a great creating the pattern and included both charted and written instructions for your knitting pleasure. Mom selected 100% organic cotton with eco dyes Inca Eco in Sage for her Christmas present after she saw I started to wind some stash organic white :-).

The st gauge was off, but it was easy enough to compensate – I just cast on fewer stitches (20 fewer to be exact). The pattern is easily customizable to different yarns, so pick your favorite & cast on Rian Cowl for your Christmas knitting today!

Puddles modeled the FO – enjoy!

I think this cowl goes great with an ear flip, which is Puddles language for having a fun time with my human!
