Very Gifted Cowl - String Classica Version

Very Gifted Cowl - String Classica Version

"Pure luxury!"

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 the ultimate in knitted luxury: worsted-weight 100% cashmere!

Our sample shown here yielded 6-1/2" 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. Surely there is more than one person in your life that deserves cashmere around their neck (and yes, that includes you!)!

28"/71cm circumference; 1 skein yielded 6.5"/16.5cm depth.

1 skein String Classica (125 yds/114m each). Shown in Color 007.
Or approx. 120 yds/110m of a worsted-weight yarn.

US 9 (5.5mm) 24"/60cm circular, or size to obtain gauge.
Optional: one US 10-1/2 (6.5mm) needle, or two sizes larger than gauge needle, for bind-off.
Stitch marker.
Darning needle to finish.

Approx. 16 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 112 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!
