From the designer:
Inspiration came from a stitch pattern shown on mypicot.com - it was shown worked in rows and I modified it to be worked in rounds. The shells and picot made me think of frost and icicles.
The cowl tapers outward from foundation to final edge - you need to be comfortable using a variable tension and increasing hook size as you progress.
Stitches used include fsc, tr, ttr (Triple Treble Crochet - starts w/4 wraps around hk), picot, shell
