This is the Eucalan Lattice Cowl, which is knitted up in two colours of worsted weight yarn and shown here in Kristin Omdahl’s Be So Brave yarn, 100% American wool (worsted weight) in colours ‘Picket Fence’ and ‘Plymouth Rock’. This was my first time using Be So Brave Yarn – it is a very matte yarn that is very well spun, even thorough and gives great stitch definition. Which is ideal for a textured stitch like the lattice stitch!

I personally like having a variety of cowls to choose from during the cold weather, and this sort of design is one I could see knitting up in all sorts of colours. the contrasting colour in particular (that is the dark grey in the photos) would be great for one of those busy variegated yarns that is challenging to work with.
The length is long enough that you can wear it as a single dramatic loop, or you can double it up to really get cozy. I prefer to wear my cowls loose, but if you want to block out the coldest of temperatures, doubled up is the way to go.
This is a surprisingly quick knit- the worsted weight goes quickly, and if would be ideal to knit up for a holiday gift or just to stashbust some lovely worsted weight in two colourways that you feel would look great together. There’s a lot of variety in how this can look- a more subtle contrasting colour would focus on the texture, or imagine two contrasting gradients! I liked the graphic quality that this cowl took on knit in such strong contrasting colours, but still goes with just about anything.
I hope you enjoy, and I really look forward to seeing other knitters interpret this pattern with all sorts of fun colour combinations and choices!
