Harpi is an old Scots word for a small scallop shell – just like the gorgeous pattern on this cowlette! Worked on every row, the lace pattern is easier than it looks and gives a beautiful drape on the edge of the cowlette. Somewhere between a small shawl and a cowl, this is a fun knit and makes a fantastic easy to wear accessory!

The pattern is fully written and charted so whichever way you like to read your patterns, you’re covered! The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted. There’s a screenshot of the pattern and a list of the stitches used at the bottom of the photos.
