Snow Flowers

Estonian knitters have developed some of the most beautiful lace stitches I’ve seen. When I saw these flower stitches grouped this way I was captivated. I had to fiddle with it a bit, I almost always do, but it didn’t take long at all to decide that this design would be a cowl, and that in addition to the lovely Estonian stitches, beads were essential. The only hard part was naming it. Until today. I was meandering through my photos, when I saw that I’d put this cowl on last week’s snow for a quick photo shoot. Flowers on the snow… no, Snow Flowers!

Cowl is knit in the round with a few rows of seed stitch at top and bottom to help prevent curling.
