Lichen and Moss Cowl

We are very excited to add the gorgeous Lichen and Moss Shawl pattern to our online pattern collection! This pattern was designed and generously donated by Sue Lazenby.

”Lichen & Moss is a cosy cowl with an interesting but easily remembered pattern, making it the ideal quick knit for last minute gifts, as well as a useful accessory to see you through the cold month. It is worked in two sizes, which could easily be adjusted for width as required. It makes a perfect partnership with the Lichen & Moss hat.”
