Hugs and Love Cowl

I wanted to make something special for someone who is dealing with a very close friend's poor health.  I knew I wanted to use the XO cables somehow but couldn't find a pattern that included those and was just right otherwise so I set about making my own.

The Hugs and Love Cowl was designed using two sets of 14 XO cables with knits and purls in between and at the beginning and end.  Created using Elsebeth Lavold Silky Flamme it has beautiful drape and is long enough to loop around your neck twice on cold days.

 This item has since been gifted but in the spirit of the gift I wanted to keep on paying forward the love and am offering this pattern for free for a limited time.

It's only been knit the one time by myself so if there are errors or questions they will hopefully be found and answered while it's free.  Then after I knit the second one I can make any needed corrections and upload the revised version for purchase.  I plan to make variations available in the pay-for version including different lengths.

Go to Ravelry and get the download or contact me if you aren't on Ravelry.
