Lantern Festival Cowl

I am a sucker for pictures of dinners, picnics, events held at dusk under pretty glowing lanterns. After seeing a particularly pretty picture of a bunch of Chinese Lanterns hung up for a festival I thought I would try to capture the idea in knit form. Here is my latest design, the..

Lantern Festival Cowl
This pattern is written for two sizes. The small is made using a fingering weight yarn on US Size 2 needles and the large is made using a worsted weight yarn on US Size 5 needles. The small hugs the face and neck while the large creates a large plush wall around the head. The bottom of the cowl has four gussets so it flares out, sitting nice and flat over the shoulders.

The pattern is sold through Ravelry (you don't have to belong to Ravelry to purchase) for $5.00.

Details about gauge and yardage requirements are included in the pattern.
In case you were wondering, the pictures were taken in the costume shop where I work. I have had little time to scout good picture taking locations, plus it's allergy season and I have no desire to spend time outside right now. So what you see in the first picture are bins and bins of ribbon, trim, beads, zippers, ect. The second picture, the one that looks like it as taken in front of a wall at Mood is taken in our fabric storage. I tell you this because knowing the treasures behind the boring background might make it a little more exciting. :) The last two pics are in front of some artwork in progress and I will have to leave it as vague as that unfortunately.
