Sand Pond Neck Wrap/Cowl pattern by Lavender Hill Knits
The Sand Pond pattern is named for a small lake in southern Maine. When the waves of the lake gently wash in and out, they leave behind beautiful formations in the sand below. The cable pattern used in this neck wrap and cowl looks like the soft rippled peaks of sand, formed by the water, that flow artistically into one another. The cable pattern creates a decorative wavy edge on the neck wrap. This pattern is perfect for knitter’s who have never tried cables and is a super quick knit for those experienced cable knitters. There are no abbreviations to learn and no charts to follow so that a knitter at any experience level can easily make this beautiful accessory.
When you feel a bit more adventurous try making the cowl, which is knit in the round. The simple cable pattern makes the cowl appropriate for a man or woman.
