Mesh Lace Cowl

Happy Saturday!

Hope everyone had a great week! Just like many of you, I am knitting away and trying to get my handmade gifts ready for Christmas. I’m about halfway through…

While getting into the crazy and hectic holiday season, I didn’t realize that there was a slight glitch in the Purl Avenue website. If any of you had submitted a comment through this site within the past week or so and I did not respond back, it’s due to the glitch. I was able to recover some of the comments and questions that were submitted but I’m not sure if I was able to get all of them. I apologize for the inconvenience. Rest assured, this problem has been fixed as of this morning so there shouldn’t be anymore problems 🙂

Now on to more happy news. I did manage to finish a new cowl pattern this week and this is in lieu of the “Quick Knits” series I am doing. I think you all are going to love it.! It is by far my favorite cowl pattern. This cowl is done with a simple mesh pattern and is perfect for beginning lace knitters.

Circumference is about 34″ (approx. 86cm) around and 8″ (approx. 23cm) wide.

This cowl took me about two to three days of on and off knitting to complete. If you are interested in giving someone a hand-knit cowl for Christmas, this is it!

Fountain Lace Stitch

 

Fountain Lace stitch pattern is a gorgeous knit pattern that resembles the water flow from fountains. Some would argue that it looks more like arches. Either way, the Fountain Lace stitch pattern is beautiful and elegant and would look great on almost any knitted project!

Skinny Lace Scarf Pattern

Hello knitters!

As promised I have posted the pattern to the skinny lace scarf that I designed. This scarf is knitted using the ridged lace stitch giving it a ribbed look. I also used super chunky yarn which came with sparkles on it to give it a little glam.

In my pattern I added tassels to my scarf, this is optional. Instead, you can add pom poms or just leave the scarf tassel-less or pom poms-less. Either way, I think you’ll be happy with the results.

2 skeins of super bulky yarn (104 yards/95 meters each)
Size 15 (10mm)
Large crochet needle

Pattern

Cast on 8 sts.

Row 2: p1, *yo, p2tog; rep from * to last st, p1.

Repeat these two rows until scarf reaches approximately 65 inches (165cm) and bind off. Block if needed. My scarf curled a little so I steam blocked it.

There you have it, very simple! Feel free to comment here or on Facebook. I’d love to know how it turns out 🙂
