It’s the perfect cowl knitting pattern for fall weather. While this design is Anne Podlesak’s first for Love of Knitting, she’s appeared in other Interweave magazines, including SpinOff, Jane Austen Knits, The Unofficial Harry Potter Knits, and Enchanted Knits. She also published Free Spirit Knits with Interweave. We love the way Anne draws inspiration from nature for colors, textures, and colorwork motifs. See more of her work at
