Lorraine by The Brown Stitch - 9888


Lorraine is the answer to the question: “What can I do with just 1 skein?” A light weight cowl featuring an easy textured stitch pattern, perfect when you want just a little something around your neck but can still be worn in warmer climates. Instructions are for either Sport or DK-weight yarn.  
What is extra special about this cowl is that it’s a collaboration between Elizabeth Smith, the designer, and her mom, Lorraine Tinkler, who is not only beautifully modeling the cowl but was also the brainchild behind the design.
