No, this pattern has no relation to the little wizard man and his stories. I just LOVE that it is "diagonally" and this cowl's patterning is diagonal lace work. I knit these while traveling in Spain and I ended up giving all 3 away as gifts... before I got close ups or measurements. They work up beautifully and light. You will have to knit one to see!

--This yarn has beautiful drape and creates a beautiful decoration around the neck. You can also pull it up and wear it as a hair wrap.
Yarn- Garnstudio DROPS Alpaca, 1 ball per cowl.
Needles- 1 US4 circular/DPN's (circulars with a 16inch cord or if you have larger then magic loop will be needed)
Extra supplies- A yarn needle to weave in ends.
-Cast on 124 sts You do not even have to mark the beginning of the round because you just go and go and go until the yarn is up!
-K2, yarn over k2tog, knit 1 * yarn over knit 2 together knit 1 * repeat from * to * around and around and around and you will get the diagonal lacey kind of pattern.
- I knit until my yarn was almost out (leave at least 3 times the circumference of the cowl to use for the cast off)
- Cast off and weave in ends.
Here is a picture to show it used as a hair wrap as well as a closer look at the pattern. This one was knit out of some sock yarn I forget the name but the colorway was Jamaica!
