Lady Louise Infinity Cowl

It's so much fun to finally have new design to release on my own. Lady Louise Infinity Cowl is a soft and drapey cowl made from lace weight alpaca held doubled. It is like wearing a soft cloud!

This cowl was so much fun to knit! Knit on 16" circular needles you knit the body of the cowl in the round from end to end. I loved it because it was simple sock-like knitting which I could carry with me and knit on whenever I had the moment. Then once the beginning and the end are grafted together to form a infinity scarf you pick up stitches along one side of the cowl and knit on the lace. The lace is interesting and yet simple enough to memorize, so again, it was a piece I could take with me and knit when I had time. 

Now that it's finished I am eager to cast on another one because it was so simple and soothing!

Many thanks to Brownie Knits for tech editing and test knitting the pattern.

I have a new an improved version of the Little Professor Vest. I'm so glad to get this back up for you all! I can't tell you how many messages I've received about this vest! I'm so glad you all enjoy it so much. I added two more sizes, a button placket in the back making the vest easier to slip over baby's head, cable charts as well as cable written instructions and a beautiful schematic. I do hope you all enjoy this new version!
