I love the fresh green of spring leaves and cheerful spring flowers. Although the weather can be a bit chilly, I’m usually ready for a change from winter woollies. The Striated cowl is light and can be worn as a single loop or doubled up for extra warmth.
Striated begins with a provisional cast-on, is knitted in rows using a simple, but striking faggot stitch and is edged with a chain selvedge. It is finished by grafting the two ends together, so the finished cowl appears seamless. It would make a great project for someone new to lace knitting.

This pattern is available in two versions: the standard one for those who knit right-handed and an alternative one written for those who knit left-handed. If you purchase the printed pattern or kit and would like the pattern for knitting left-handed, please say so in your order notes at check out.
Most of you knit right-handed, that is, your stitches move from the left to right needle as you knit.
Some of you knit left-handed, that is, your stitches move from the right to left needle as you knit.
If you are a left-handed knitter who knits right-handed, that is your stitches move from the left to right needle, you should use the pattern for knitting right-handed.
