Have you seen the Spring 2014 issue of Interweave Knits? We’re in love with this gorgeous and luxurious merino and silk lace cowl designed by Mindy Wilkes. The Star House Cowl alternates rings of doubled “hems” and lace patterning, creating an accessory with heft and dimension—yet one that’s still delicate.
