Very Gifted Cowl - Rowan Finest Version

Very Gifted Cowl - Rowan Finest Version

"A sumptuous blend."

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 Rowan's fingering-weight blend appropriately named 'Finest' - by blending merino with alpaca and cashmere, they've put three of the most sumptuous fibers into one delicious skein.

Our sample shown here yielded 10" of knitted depth from 3 skeins, but the pattern lists yardage requirements for each knitted inch of depth so you’ll know just how far one skein 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 Finest. Happy knitting!

FINISHED SIZE
28"/71cm circumference; 3 skeins yielded 10"/23cm depth.

3 skeins Rowan Finest (95 yds/87m each). Shown in Color 62.
Or approx. 280 yds/256m of a fingering-weight yarn.

NEEDLES & NOTIONS
US 3 (3.25mm) 24"/60cm circular, or size to obtain gauge.
Optional: one US 5 (3.75mm) needle, or two sizes larger than gauge needle, for bind-off.
Stitch marker.
Darning needle to finish.

GAUGE
Approx. 26 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 182 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!
