Brush Creek Cowlette

If you have knit my Zuzu’s Petals pattern, you are familiar with a cowlette – a cowl with the look of a shawlette when worn. Brush Creek has all the style of a lace shawlette without the fuss of trying to keep it stylishly draped around your neck! It is knit using Brooklyn Tweed LOFT in 3 colorways to create an ombré effect.

This design is also available as a shawl. Purchase both the Brush Creek Cowlette and Shawl patterns and receive a $2 discount! No code needed and purchases do not have to be made at the same time, the discount will be automatically applied any time the second pattern in the set is purchased.
