With Nymphalis published as a follow up to Canterlot, I thought I should have a cowl to go with the hat and mitts, and really I was just desperate to use the lace cuff design from Canterlot again. I came up with a cowl that had several possible variations, the first was size. It comes in a drapey smaller size and a larger size that can be looped 2-3 times or worn in a long infinity scarf style. It also offers a garter edging for those that didn’t love the lacey edging as much as me.
I wound up knitting mine in a beautiful blue with lots of large speckled pops of rainbow colors, which inspired me to give in a name that reflected not just the colors of the cowl, but it sort of just *went with* the name of Canterlot, neverminding the fact that Nymphalis didn’t follow that same naming convention.
