Treat yourself (or someone you love) to a beautiful kit for the Fire and Ice Cowl. Each kit comes with one skein of 100% Gulf Coast Native yarn from Georgia Rustic Wool, a cotton project bag, a stitch marker, and a digital dowload code for the Fire & Ice pattern (PDF).
During the depths of winter, I love the contrast between the icy-cold outside and our cozy hearth. Fire and ice go together in the best of ways and this cowl showcases how these opposites attract. Knit from the bottom up and broken into four panels, the cowl will keep you occupied without requiring tons of attention. The fire motif is a simple lace pattern (requiring only yarn overs and a k2tog decrease); the ice motif is a simple cable pattern with a cross every few rows. If you’d like to make the cowl slightly larger or even triple its original size, modification options are also included with the pattern. Pattern instructions are both charted and written.
