Very Gifted Cowl - Rowan Cocoon Version

Very Gifted Cowl - Rowan Cocoon Version

"Done in a heartbeat!"

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 chunky-weight Rowan Cocoon, a cozy merino and mohair blend that's a winter favorite.

With the yarn held single and knitted at 3 stitches to the inch, it's a speedy project, and a single skein yields 9½" of knitted depth. 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!

Click on "The Free Pattern" tab to see the pattern. And then choose a shade of Rowan Cocoon. Happy knitting!

Optional: one US 13 (9mm) needle, or two millimeters larger than gauge needle, for bind-off.
Stitch marker.
Darning needle to finish.

GAUGE
Approx. 12 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 84 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!
