Balustrade cowl

I made Mom a cowl out of Malabrigo Silky Merino, colorway Amoroso last year. Unfortunately, Mom forgot to ask me before deciding to wash the cowl. She stuck it in the washing machine, and promptly felted the cowl. No chance of fitting it over her head.

Since I had to more skeins of the color, I decided to whip up a replacement cowl. The Balustrade cowl is a longer cowl that uses two skeins of Malabrigo Silky Merino, and it has an interesting structure, almost architectural. Indeed, the designer writes that she was inspired by decorative ornaments in architecture. A quick knit, and a fun and easy pattern.
