Suilven Cowl Knitting Pattern
A cosy cowl with zigzag stripes of intricate lace. Lightweight and warm in alpaca yarn, this is a real treat to wrap up in. Suilven is an iconic peak in the Scottish Highlands – the zigzags in the lace mirror its distinctive peaks. The lace pattern is easier than it looks and working through the different rows in the zigzag pattern makes this an engaging and addictive knit. And whichever cowl you knit, you’ll have enough yarn left over to make the matching Suilven Hat.
