Perfect for layering over spring and summer outfits, this light zigzag lace cowl knits up fast. It's a great way to try knitting lace if you've never knitted lace before. It uses just one skein of Berroco Captiva yarn. The yarn itself is a cotton/rayon blend with a lot of sheen. It almost looks like it's chenille, but it's a smooth shiny cotton that reflects the light beautifully.
