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 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!
