I have just finished designing and knitting ‘A Hint of Snow, Cowl’, I am really enjoying knitting cowsl at the moment, I have knitted this one on a chunky handspun Merino 2 ply. To give you an idea, the yarn gives approximately 6 wraps per inch and I used 7mm circular needles with the longest cable I could find:) It’s a wonderfully warm cowl and is very versatile as it can be worn in so many ways, twisted twice or three times to create a different look.
Here is the pattern:)
Just a quick note: the pattern consists of 4 pattern rows,
- slip slip knit (ssk),
- knit 1, make one (or yarn over to make a hole) when you come to the end of this round, make sure you remember to make one (yarn over) at the end of the round and not merely just move the yarn to the front because in the following round you purl, so when ending the 3rd round take the yarn all the way around the needle and back to the front to make a stitch before you begin purling the following round:)
ok, enough chatting from me here’s the pattern:)
300 grams of chunky yarn (approx 6 wraps per inch)
6.5mm / US 10.5 circular needles with a long cable
Sewing needle for ends
8mm needle for cast off edge so that it will be nice and lose
Cast on 190 stitches and join for knitting in the round.
Round 1: Knit
Round 2: (SSK) repeat all around the round. (slip,slip, knit) both stitches are slipped from the left needle to the right needle knitwise and then both stitches on the right needle are knitted with the left needle by placing the left needle through the front of both stitches and knitting them together.
Round 3: (Knit 1, make 1) ( a make one is also called a yarn over) repeat all around the round. See Just a Quick Note above for this round.
Round 4: Purl
Repeat these 4 rounds another 7 times.
Cast off using an 8mm needle to ensure a lose cast off edge.
Sew in all ends.
You are finished!!
