Appia by Hilary Smith Callis

Cost:  $25, includes pattern

It is shaped like a semi-circular shawl with evenly spaced increase rows, but is worked partially in the round, so it can be worn as a cowl without any dangling ends. The all-over Roman Stripe stitch pattern is simple to execute and creates a knitted fabric that is both lacey and highly textured, for maximum impact. Appia comes in two sizes, each taking less than a skein of sock yarn, and is quick enough to make one for yourself and for a gift!
