Finish your chic ensemble in this Springtime in Paris inspired cowl as you float down the Seine River towards a romantic rendezvous at a French cafe. Drop stitches and wavy cables flow continuously with the movement of the river. Fresh croissants and cafe au lait won’t be the only tempting treats warming your heart.
The tech edited and test knit pattern includes written directions, charts, and a You Tube video for both the long drop and the short non-drop versions.
Pattern includes both the cowl & the cuffs!

- Small Loop: 20”/ 51cm long by 8.5”/ 21.5cm wide.
- Large Loop: 43”/ 109cm long by 11”/ 28cm wide.
