Designed for our deSTITCHnation monthly yarn club, this hooded cowl is inspired by Little Red Riding Hood’s cloak. The lace pattern is reminiscent of pine cones she might have seen on her path to Grandma’s house. The cowl is knit from the bottom up in an easy-to-memorize lace pattern, then split for the hood and worked flat. Alternately you could continue working the lace for the entire cowl, finishing with 5 ridges of garter stitch.
