Original Design by Alexis Winslow

Gowanus, delicate and versatile, is for fickle fall weather and snappy spring mornings. It can be worn draped around the neck as a stylish transitional accessory, a 3-seasons scarf, or over the shoulders as a small shawlette for a more classic look.

This charming scarflette is knitted in one piece and worked from a chart. The pattern is easy to memorize and a cinch to make on size 9 US needles, perfect for the beginner lace knitter. The dainty eyelet pattern is accentuated by a feminine, but not too sweet, picot edge that is worked during the bind-off.

Gowanus requires only a 50g ball of fingering weight yarn, a perfect use of that extra ball of sock yarn you have lingering in your stash!
