Adama: A Shawl – Cowl Hybrid

Adama: A Shawl – Cowl Hybrid

 

Love the look of semi-circular shawls but have issues styling them? Adama is your answer! Adama starts off as a semi-circular shawl which is then joined into the round to make for easy styling and high-wearability. It features rustic diamonds that are banded by garter and stockinette stitches and the lace is both charted and written – making this an ideal pattern for learning how to read lace charts. The hybrid shawl – cowl can be worn a little scrunched up like a shawl wrapped around your neck or it can be pulled over your shoulders more like a poncho – either way, it looks great!
