Nyra Cowl

This past spring I taught a workshop at The Knitter’s Nook in Columbus, Indiana. The entire city is an architectural gem and I had an amazing time teaching, meeting new knitters and making friends that will last a lifetime. One of these friends was Nyra, the owner of Knitter’s Nook. Nyra and I clicked instantly (she picked me up at the airport waving a hank of yarn and that bonded us forever) and I was sad to say goodbye to her and her wonderful family when the workshop was over.

In honor of Nyra, I designed the Nyra Cowl, a faux-cabled (it’s really lace!) cowl with wrapped stitches knit in the round with 3 hanks of Shibui Staccato fingering weight yarn. I have been in love with Latvian Braids forever and they work well dividing up the lace sections. It would also knit up beautifully in sock yarn or even DK for a bigger cowl.

Originally designed as a workshop exclusive, I’m pleased to finally offer this cowl up to knitters everywhere. This would make a great gift for the upcoming holidays! Stay tuned for more small projects ideal for holiday knitting coming each week until the season is upon us.

    Is the written pattern complete or does one need the chart(s)? Aging eyes do not do charts. TIA
