Very Gifted Cowl - Berroco Andean Mist Version

Very Gifted Cowl - Berroco Andean Mist Version

"A mohair look without the mohair."

A gift for youa super-versatile cowl pattern that is simplicity itself, with details for eight yarn weights so you can use almost any yarn (or combination of yarns) you like. Here, we've chosen dk-weight Berroco Andean Mist, a fluffy yarn that gives the loft of mohair with no mohair! Its secret is in the super-fine brushed Suri alpaca, blended with silkit's like a little cloud around your neck!

Our sample shown here yielded 8" of knitted depth from just a single skein, but the pattern lists yardage requirements for each knitted inch of depth so you’ll know just how far more skeins can go. Make one for you, one for a friend!

28"/71cm circumference; 1 skein yielded 8"/20cm depth.

1 skein Berroco Andean Mist (164 yds/150m each). Sample shown in color 6303.
Or approx. 160 yds/m of a DK-weight yarn.

US 7 (4.5mm) 24"/60cm circular, or size to obtain gauge.
Optional: one US 9 (5.5mm) needle, or two sizes larger than gauge needle, for bind-off.
Stitch marker.
Darning needle to finish.

Approx. 20 sts = 4"/10cm in stockinette stitch in the round, blocked.

See the "Basic Details" tab for size, yarn, needle, and gauge information.

Cast On: Using cable cast-on method, cast on 140 stitches. Do not join in the round yet.

Edging row (right side): Purl. At end of row, do not turn. Place marker on right needle and join to work in round, being careful not to twist.

Stockinette stitch: Knit every round until work measures desired depth and you have at least 4 yds/3.5m of yarn left to bind off.

Bind off:Bind off purlwise, working loosely (or using larger needle in right hand) to match tension of cast-on edge. Or, turn work so inside of cowl is facing you and bind off knitwise.

Finishing: Weave in ends on wrong side. Gently steam- or wet-block; allow to dry, turning occasionally to avoid setting creases. Pop it on, or wrap it up!
