Paradiso Easy Knit Cowl

Paradiso Easy Knit Cowl

Dark and deep, just like its namesake, this Paradiso Easy Knit Cowl fits sophisticated ladies to a T. It helps that it's so simple, even someone just beginning knitting can make one. The Paradiso is the final journey of Dante in Dante's Divine Comedy, where he ascends the nine spheres to the pinnacle of Heaven. Free knitting patterns for cowls won't take you quite that far, but they can certainly take you to the pinnacle of stylishness. You'll love the mysterious gray-green coloring that fades in and out.
