Last week I released a new cowl pattern. Apparently, I'm on a cowl kick (not to be confused with a cow kick, I do not condone the kicking of cows, but I digress). This is Duvessa:

A couple of weeks ago I asked for some help naming this new pattern. I decided on Duvessa, sent to me from FaerieKP on Ravelry. I've sent Faerie a copy of the pattern already. Thanks to everyone for playing along, there were lots of good names to pick from!

This cowlette is fun and quick to knit. You start by knitting a top-down triangle shawl in garter stitch (one of my favorite things ever). Once the garter stitch section is complete, the piece is joined in the round and the charts are worked.
Written instructions are included with the charts, as always. After the cable and lace pattern, it's finished off with a simple, but lovely, garter stitch edge.
I used Into the Whirled Pakokku Sock for the sample. I purchased it at Rhinebeck last year and it's been begging me to turn it into something. This cowlette design seemed like the perfect match.


I hope you enjoy the new pattern. I have another one coming soon-ish. And, guess what? It's not a cowl, it's a shawl! Stay tuned. :)
