Pattern Details

Inspired by the fantastical amanita mushroom, this cowl is a choose your own adventure kind of project. You can make a reversible cowl where you use a provisional cast on to start and then graft the stitches to the live edge to create a seamless reverse backing, or knit a ribbed hem at top and bottom. For the amanita section, choose between the simple amanita mushroom chart or the fair isle option. Yarn: Drops Alpaca -For hemmed edge (& either chart), you’ll need, 1 ball of each: CC1 (white, col. 101); CC2 (red, col. 3620); and MC (teal, col. 2919). - For the reversible cowl (& either chart), you’ll need 1 ball of each CC1 (white, col. 101), and CC2 (red, col. 3620); 2 balls of MC (teal, col. 2919). Needles 2.5 mm circular needle, 24” long, or size required to obtain gauge (& for fair isle version, another circular needle of equal or smaller gauge for completing the Kitchener stitch grafting). Gauge Approximately 24 sts x 32 rows in stockinette. Sizing One size (both versions measure approximately 24” in circumference, and the cowl stands between 6-7” high.) Other Materials Required A stitch marker for both versions, and for the reversible back version, you’ll need waste yarn, a 3 mm crochet hook for the provisional cast on, and a sewing needle for working Kitchener stitch.

As a freelance copy editor and transcriptionist (and a student again as well!), I happily work for myself from home, which generally allows me to knit and craft and create when the mood strikes. For me, knitting and crocheting has evolved from a hobby to an all-consuming passion (some would say obsession). Inspiration for my designs is drawn from all over the place, including past travels -- from Turkey to Kyrgyzstan and many places in between.
