Rosehaven. Evocative of a sun room’s windows framed by old-growth climbing roses in full bloom, or the rose garden at a country manor house with bushes absolutely covered with fragrant old-fashioned blossoms. Knit this thick cowl and surround yourself with most fragrant blooms on the coldest winter days.

Cowl is worked in the round with yarn held double, and knit from one end straight through to the other. Add a repeat or two to widen it, then this stretchy cowl can easily double as a cozy capelet.

In the mood for another cowl that is also made with twisted stitches? Lazy River coordinates beautifully with Rosehaven, and can be purchased on its own, or buy both in an ebook called Roses & Riverbeds.
