Laura Patterson of Fiber Dreams shares the
evolution of the design for her Lisca
cowl..."When I saw this beautiful tulip stitch I was compelled
to design a cowl using it. I just had to do it. While searching
for the perfect name I came across the Lisca tulip and was
equally smitten. Please forgive me calling it that though the
stitch does not have the flower’s frilly edges. I am certain you
will be able to find a garden of beautiful colors that this cowl
could be knit from."
Cowl is knit in the round in garter stitch,
which means that every other round is purled, except where
needed to make the flowers and leaves stand out.
