Very Gifted Cowl - Berroco Andean Mist Version

Very Gifted Cowl - Berroco Andean Mist Version

"A mohair look without the mohair."

Our gift to you this season: a 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 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 silk - it'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!
