Both Rosehaven and Lazy River begin and end with a simple twisted rib stitch… then they diverge. Rosehaven transforms into leaves and rosebuds with a twisted rib background, while Lazy River separates and rejoins in streams of twisted stitches.
Both cowls are worked in the round, are knit from one end straight through to the other, and are worked with two strands of fingering weight yarn. Add a repeat or two to widen, and they could both easily double as cozy capelets.
