Lazy Lace Cowl

A few years back I made myself a lace snood, which was swiftly borrowed by Rowan – becoming a very popular download on the Deramores website and then a Rowan kit.

wpid-snood-kit.jpg.jpegI think the popularity of the Lazy Lace Snood was largely due it’s simplicity. I like a challenge as much as the next person, but when I’m relaxing with my knitting at the end of the day, I generally like to have something simple on the go – especially if I’m knitting in the pub with friends! A quick and simple project also makes a lovely gift.

I continued the theme with the Lazy Lace Throw in Cute Little Knits, which is a great project if you want to try lace for the first time but can’t be bothered with fiddly little needles and lace weight yarns!

With Alpaca Cotton being discontinued this year, I wanted to develop a new version of the snood and give it a few tweaks and improvements.

lazylacecowlThe Lazy Lace Cowl uses Kidsilk Haze and Felted Tweed knitted together (which is beautiful!) and is knitted in the round.

There are three different depths depending on how snuggly you want it to be and how much yarn you want to use! The small just takes one ball each, the medium is one ball of Kidsilk Haze and approx one and a half of Felted Tweed and the large is two balls of each.

The Lazy Lace Cowl pattern is now available to buy from Ravelry here and I will have kits and printed patterns of the medium size cowl at Yarndale so come and say hello x

We had fun taking some skipping shots – theyย didn’t make the cut but I thought you might like to see!

ย If you’re new to knitting and want to give lace a try – come along to my Lazy Lace Cowl workshop and I’ll get you started! You will get a free copy of the cowl pattern at the workshop.
