Pattern Details

Here is a stash-busting, stocking stuffing, super cozy cowl to knit now for yourself and again in different shades for holiday giving—the perfect chill chaser for anyone on your list and a great teacher gift, too. Its intricate patterning and texture hold a little secret—in real life, it is extremely quick, easy, and entertaining to work in the round using two or three colors; it’s the perfect sideline knitting project, even the second and third time. Pattern includes instructions for two lengths and several color arrangements. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape. Finished Size: 26(54) inches in circumference and 7.5 inches in depth (blocked) Gauge: 19 sts and 30 rows = 4 inches in stockinette on larger needles (unwashed, unblocked)

I am the owner of Knitspot - knitting patterns, clubs, and artisan yarns. I am a life-long knitter with a background in the fashion and graphic design fields, and began designing clothing, knitwear and accessories during the 1970s. I teach and write about knitting, spinning, and designing at my blog, Knitspot. I live and work in Ohio with David, who loves wool, too. My design work/profile has been included in Knitty, The Knitter, Interweave Knits, and Twist Collective, Sock Club, Brave New Knits, as well as several upcoming publications. The complete catalog of Knitspot patterns is available for browsing and purchasing at http://www.knitspot.com/knitting_pattern/index.php Knitspot yarn clubs are reknowned for perfect pairings of luxury yarn and design, as well as the rollicking good fun in our Ravelry clubhouse where members meet, chat, and knit through club projects together. http://www.knitspot.com/clubs/index.html Our Bare Naked yarns are as close to the farm as a knitter can get, using fresh fiber produce from regional growers which is then spun into yarn at smaller artisan mills with which I have worked over the years. The collection is focused on single-breed pure wool yarns and exotic blends, with colors that range an entire array of natural tones—yarn the way nature made it. http://knitspot.com/knitting_pattern/yarn-c-21.html
