K - Knit | P - Purl | CO - Cast On
BO - Bind Off | st(s) - Stitches
Size & Gauge:
One size fits all! Gauge is not super essential - we recommend getting a swatch you’re happy with and going for it!
Pro tip: these 2 yarns create very different cowls!
(or use approx 150 yards of a similar gauge thick and thin yarn)
Needles n’ Notions:
- 6mm (US 10) 16 inch circular knitting needle
- 1 stitch marker
- A darning needle for weaving in ends
CO 70 stitches using a long tail cast on method, join to work in the round. Place marker for beginning of round.
Knit following the simple rule, explained below!
The Simple Rule: always knit when the working yarn is thinner, and purl when the working yarn is thicker.
Simply put, you will be knitting most of the time, and purling whenever you come across a nice, big bump in your working yarn.
Work in pattern until piece measures 11 inches, or until you have concerns about running out of yarn before casting off.
BO loosely so that you can get your gorgeous head through the cowl. We recommend wet blocking your own for extra drape!
To make a double cowl: cast on 160 stitches and follow the pattern. (Note: you will need 2 to 3 skeins of required yarn.)
