This sunny yellow Friendship cowl is sure to bring a smile. In more recent translation, the yellow rose signifies friendship in the language of roses, and this cheerful cowl is the perfect way to honor a special friend. Knit in lustrous superfine merino wool and silk yarn, this cowl drapes perfectly on the neck, adding a special touch to any blouse or dress.

Since I loved how the Friendship shawl turned out, I decided to try my luck at converting the pattern into a cowl and am very happy with the results. It knit up rather quickly, using three repeats of the branch pattern, one of the leaves and one final rose chart with just three rows of garter stitch at the beginning. I will definitely knit this up again with another color.
