Free Knitting Pattern - Handspun Popcorn Lace Cowl

July 08, 2013

This is a super fun and quick beginner lace project designed specifically for thread plied handspun yarn. I used my Rainbow Handspun Yarn in Pastel, but you can try any self striping, or bulky yarn- just be sure to get the correct gauge  If you are a spinner, spin your own yarn using one of my Merino Wool Spinners Pack in either Pastel Rainbow or Bright Rainbow.

Designed to be worn purl side out, this cowl looks almost crocheted! It is lightweight to wear and makes a great gift!

Popcorn Lace cowl modeled by my dramatic 6 year old daughter. 

8 st x 12 rows, 4” x 4”

*in pattern stitch


 One Size


14 x 10 ½” - blocked


3.5 oz , 112 yards OnTheRound Thread Plied Handspun

US Size 10 (6.0 mm) 16” circular needle

Tapestry Needle 


CO 60 sts, join to work in the round being careful not to twist your stitches. Knit 2 rounds even.

Begin stitch pattern as follows:

R1           p1 *YO, p3, YO, p1* -repeat *to* around

R2           p2 *k3tog, p3** -repeat *to* around, ending in p2

R3           p2 *YO, p1, YO, p3* -repeat *to* around, ending in p2

R4           k2tog, *p3, k3tog*-repeat *to* around, ending in k2tog

Repeat the 4 rows of the stitch pattern 12 times or until you have completed all the color changes in your yarn.

Knit to rows even and bind off loosely.  Finish your cowl by sewing in loose ends with your tapestry needle and block.
