Pattern Notes

Pattern is worked continually throughout holding 2 strands of worsted weight yarn.

Pattern Instructions

  1. Holding 2 strands of Color A held together, CO 54 (I used the long tail CO method). Leave a long tail to use for seaming at the end, approximately 60″ in length.
  2. Row 1: K across.
  3. Row 2: CO 1 at beginning of row using the single cast on method (or backward loop method) to increase stitch count by 1, P across until 2 loops remain of left needle. P2tog to decrease.
  4. Repeat Row 1 and 2 nine more times for a total of 20 rows.
  5. Switch to Color B. Repeat Rows 1 and 2 ten times for a total of 20 rows.
  6. Switch back to Color A. Repeat Rows 1 and 2 ten times for a total of 20 rows.
  7. Repeat step 5.
  8. Repeat step 6.
  9. Repeat step 5 once more.
  10. BO and weave in your ends.

Wet blocking the cowl really made the fibers open up and feel luxurious.

Finishing Instructions

  1. Feel free to block your cowl to give the acrylic/wool blend some fluidity and uniformity. It’s not a necessity but I highly recommend it!
  2. Lay your cowl RS down, and fold over both ends (as pictured below) and place the two edges together so that they line up stitch by stitch.
  3. With your long tail of yarn and a tapestry needle, use an invisible horizontal seam to stitch the two ends together. To do this, place the needle under the first edge stitch on one side and pull the yarn through. Place the needle under the first edge stitch on the opposite side that lines up with the previous stitch. Pull the yarn through. Place the needle under the next stitch on the first side. Continue stitching back and forth like this until the seam is complete. 
  4. Fasten off and weave in your ends.
