Since we just launched eight new free patterns last week, it would be completely ludicrous for us to share any pattern with you on this Free Pattern Friday, other than one of our own!

This week’s pattern has a couple of things in common with last week’s pattern. It’s free… It’s a cowl… It has been designed by the talented Helen FiringAnd it uses a beautiful yarn by Manos del Uruguay.

But don’t let those similarities stop you from making both! These cowls each have a very distinct personality of their own, which can satisfy the many sides of our own knitting personality, and fashion senses.

            One Skein Hourglass Eyelets Cowl by Helen Firing for Estelle Designs

This cowl has been appropriately named the ‘One Skein Hourglass Eyelets Cowl’, and as the name suggests, uses only one skein of the gorgeously soft Manos Del Uruguay yarn, Franca. This cowl knits up quickly, and is a fantastic introduction to lace knitting if you are currently finding yourself only just testing the lace knitting waters these days.
So what are you waiting for? Grab yourself a skein of Franca the next time you are visiting your local yarn store, and cast on. You will love how satisfying this project will be. Not only to knit- but to wear!

Happy knitting everyone!
