All is peaceful. The gentle breeze creates ripples on the water. The emerald waters of the small mountain lake glisten in the sun, sparkling shiny dots like stars… Dragonflies glide above the waters. Green glows everywhere. We are surrounded by the forest, and grassy waterfronts stretch their velvety texture all around the lake. We pause. We admire.
The Ondulació cowl is an ode to the play of water in sun and air, with all its wonderful colors and nuances. Ondulació means ripple in Catalan. The cowl sports an all-over reversible and textured lace stitch pattern, rippling, flowing, winding and repeating. Come glide along with us and enjoy the peaceful shore on a nice summer afternoon. All in style!
For best effect, use a round yarn with good stitch definition. Yarn weights ranging from Fingering to Worsted would be suitable. As for colorways, I would recommend solid, semi-solid, speckled, or gradient (single skein or gradient set) yarns.
Note that the yarn used in this pattern is listed as DK but behaves more like Sportweight.
