Very Gifted Cowl Using Blue Sky Fibers Brushed Suri

Very Gifted Cowl Using Blue Sky Fibers Brushed Suri

"A mohair look without the mohair."

A gift for you—a super-versatile cowl pattern that is simplicity itself! It includes details for eight yarn weights so you can use almost any yarn—or combination of yarns—you like. Make one for you, one for a friend!

The fluff factor of Blue Sky Fibers Brushed Suri is nearly off the charts. Knit into a Very Gifted Cowl, it’s like a little cloud around your neck! The long, shiny locks of baby Suri alpaca are blended with merino wool and bamboo for a fiber that’s quite strong and so very soft.

NEEDLES & NOTIONS

Optional: one US 10½ (6.5mm) needle, or two sizes larger than gauge needle, for bind-off.
Stitch marker.
Darning needle to finish.

GAUGE
Approx. 16 sts = 4"/10cm in stockinette stitch in the round, blocked.

See the "Basic Details" tab for size, yarn, needle, and gauge information. Note: The following directions are for the worsted-weight version of the Very Gifted Cowl.


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!
