Independent Designer Feature: Lispenard Cowl

Kristen Kapur of Through the Loops published a gorgeous new design on Valentine's Day, the Lispenard Cowl {ravelry link} + {blog link}, knit out of Acadia in Maple.


Named after a street in her New York City neighborhood, the Lispenard Cowl features cables, lace, a garter edge for stability, and a multitude of options for wear - loop it once for a long drapey scarf, or wrap it around your neck two or three times for a snug and warm cowl.


The combination of stitch definition and slight tweedy texture of the Acadia plays beautifully with the bold stitch pattern used in the design, creating a finished accessory that is both graphic and organic.


Specs: • Finished Size: 13”/33cm wide by 61”/155cm long (unbuttoned) • Yarn: Acadia in Maple, 5 skeins. • Needles: US 9 (5.5mm) straight or circular needles • Gauge: 20 sts & 25 rows = 4”/10cm in Lispenard pattern after blocking • Notions: 6 stitch markers, cable needle, tapestry needle, 6 - 3/4”/19mm buttons
