Wrapped round twice.
Wrapped round three times.
Hi, I have finished the Forest Glade Cowl, I’m really happy with the stitch technique that developed from a yarn over and a knit 2 together. Such simple stitches and together they have manifested into a slanting pattern forming a cowl. This cowl has been designed in multiples of 2, so it’s really easy to make it larger or smaller by reducing or increasing the stitches by 2 either way.
It measures 58 inches around and can wrap 2 or 3 times depending on how cold you are I guess:)
I enjoyed knitting in this Hartlam yarn, it’s a Merino with a hint of luxurious cashmere.
I have added the pattern to Ravelry and it’s a free pattern:) Yay I love sending patterns out into the world.
If you do knit this cowl, I would love to see your finished item, please would you link to the pattern on Ravelry and share it on my group or send me a photo if you like:)
Forest Glade Cowl Pattern ©
5mm circular needles
100 grams of DK yarn
sewing needle for the ends
yo: yarn over (wrap the yarn under the needle and over to the back) This creates a hole.
Cast on 220 stitches and join for knitting in the round, place a stitch marker at the start of the round.
Round 1: Knit
Round 2: (yo, knit 2 together) repeat across the round.
Rounds 3-5: Repeat round 2.
Round 6: Knit
Round 7: Purl
Rounds 2-7 are the rounds that make up the pattern, I have done 6 pattern repeats altogether with my 100 gram skein of yarn. If you would like your cowl to be thicker, just continue with the pattern repeats, you will need another skein of yarn. When you are finished with your last pattern repeat just finish with a knit round and not a purl for the border.
Bind off loosely (use a larger needle size if you prefer)
Remember, if you would like to shorten or lengthen this cowl, just use multiples of 2:)
