The Design

“A cozy cowl with pretty little twists!”

Not quite a cable, not really lace, this pretty little twisted eyelet stitch pattern lends itself nicely to knitting in the round. Based on a favorite shop pattern, the softly draping cowl tapers a wee bit to keep it closer to the neck. We knit the matching beanie a little tighter for a stretchier fit. Cleverly mitered crown shaping resolves the stitch pattern beautifully . . . if we do say so ourselves.

We knit our Vineyard Cowl & Beanie in Rowan Alpaca Classic. This DK-weight yarn has a cotton net at the core of its strand that captures an abundance of alpaca fuzz—perfect for pieces that are as light as they are soft! Plus, Alpaca Classic’s palette of jewel-like colors is a delight to peruse—so much so, it might be hard to pick a favorite!
