Energia One-Skein Cowl Free Knitting Pattern

I knitted up this easy diagonal lace cowl during just one evening of watching the Olympics. It worked up fast and was perfect to knit while watching TV. Just enough of a pattern to keep me interested, but not too distracting to take away from watching TV and talking. The cowl uses one skein of Adriafil Energia yarn and is knitted in the round. I used color Rapsberry Lips, but I must admit it was hard to choose, all of the colors are so pretty!
