"This soft and warm tubular cowl is just the thing for some early morning bird watching, to wear or to knit. It starts with an unusual step: a long strip of lace, which is joined end-to-end to form a ring. The stitches of the cowl are picked up around one edge of this ring and worked in the round as a narrow tube until the cowl reaches its desired length. The live stitches are then joined to the other edge of the ring, creating a round and voluminous cowl with no wrong side, and also eliminating any unsightly jogs. Cuddly and versatile Finch is all too happy to be worked at a large, lacy gauge, and provides more than enough yardage to see you through. Enjoy!" - Kirsten
