I made an assassins cowl for my youngest, he thought the worm cowl I made last week which I posted here, looked liked the assassins cowl in the game Fable. He asked me to make him one in black. Who am I to deny a request for a knitted item-lol. I altered the pattern a bit. Its a lace pattern that is done in two parts then stitched together in the mid line of the cowl. This is to create a pointed lace hem on both the top and bottom of the cowl. He wanted points only on the top, so I did pattern straight through for 5 rounds of the pattern. It turned out well but if for an adult I would do 6-7 rounds so as to have enough cowl to go from nose top to sternum.
Overall the effect is very similar. It is a super easy knit and great beginning to following lace charts. Can be done in worsted or heavier. I used a Patons satin I think, very silky almost shiny wool blend in worsted weight.
