Classic Elite Yarns



Issue 373 – Flor de Maio

As a knitter who is perpetually cold this time of year, I find myself wearing cowls when I'm outdoors, at work and even while relaxing at home in the evenings. With such constant use, I like my cowls to look good from all angles.

With this in mind, I designed this cowl in a reversible lace pattern that looks beautiful on both sides. A simple eyelet and garter stitch pattern keeps the edges from curling. My cowl is knit in colorful Chateau, but it would also be beautiful in undyed Chalet.

The Yarn

70% Baby Alpaca • 30% Bamboo

MountainTop Chalet's colorful cousin, Chateau is the same super-soft baby alpaca/bamboo blend with a chainette construction. It knits up quickly, which is perfect for last-minute gifts. Any pattern written for Chalet will knit up just as beautifully in Chateau.
