Pick two colours of your favourite fingering weight yarn and lose yourself in a deceptively simple knit. Shine On Cowl combines a clean lace stitch with a complex-looking, but easy to work, diamond mosaic pattern. The graphic diamond motif is created with slipped stitches, and only one colour is ever worked at one time – no stranding! The slight funnel shaping allows for it to sit comfortably on your shoulders and closer around your neck.
The Shine On Cowl is worked in the round, top down, with both charted and written instructions included.

Hello from Australia! You’ll pretty much always find me dreaming about my next favourite shawl - the accessory I most love to design, knit and wear. Otherwise I’ll be wandering about my vegetable garden, nearby bush or perhaps a little escape to the beach.
With a background in painting, I have a passion for colour and interesting design.
I design contemporary knitwear patterns, with a nod to retro and geometric design. Patterns that are straight forward to follow and fun to wear.
