Golden Hour Cowl


In photography, the moment right before sunset and shortly after sunrise is called the ‘golden hour’. During this time, daylight is softer and warmer in hue than when the sun is higher in the sky.

Golden Hour Cowl features an intricate and undulating lace pattern reminiscent of hourglasses. Create your own magical moment with this shimmering cowl knit with one strand of fingering-weight sock yarn and the other a fluffy silk mohair. Choose two yarns with similar colors to let the lace pattern shine.

Golden Hour Cowl is knit in the round using short or long circular needles, starting and ending with a bit of twisted ribbing. The length and circumference of the cowl can be easily adjusted to your liking.

The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Instructions for the lace pattern are given both in written and charted format.
