Fremont Cowl

In Aran weight yarn, Cowls, Patterns, Shop sample available, Worsted weight yarn by Shannon

The trip between my house and the Knitted Wit Studio takes me down a small part of Fremont Street in NE Portland. I’m only on the street for a short period of time, but it’s one that holds a special place in my Portland-y heart. Once upon a time, I spent free time on Fremont Street. In fact, I discovered salt bagels on Fremont Street (oh, salt bagels!) The lace pattern on the Fremont Cowl is interesting and has a rhythm to it. TV knitting with a twist. The yarn is truly fabulous to work with – soft, drapy, lofty.
