Boboli Lace is a yarn with a secret. It looks very unassuming in the ball. It's not until you actually knit this Berroco yarn that you discover it's beauty. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed knitting it! Boboli Lace is wooly but since it contains a bit of rayon, it's smooth with a soft sheen. The result is very elegant and the colors just pop.
I knitted this quick cowl using just one skein of Boboli Lace. Knitted in stockinette stitch, this pattern is great for a beginning knitter. Since rolling edges are a natural characteristic of this stitch, it gives the finished project a lovely tube look!
Perfect for transitional seasons, wear this cowl long and loose or doubled around the neck. My daughter liked it so much, she grabbed it and wore it around right after I finished photographing it on the mannequin!
