The Adriatic Sea can be as varied as the countries that border it. Sometimes it’s warm and calm; sometimes it’s cold with white capped waves. This cowl was inspired by the changeable Adriatic, and it is beautiful whether you use a monochromatic yarn, a semisolid, or a dizzying variegated hand-dye. Wear it long over a light dress for a late night in the summer… or double it up to keep you warm while sipping espresso in the piazza in winter. The single ply yarn gives drape to the soft waves in the simple but effective stitch pattern.

Gauge for this pattern can be easily adjusted, but you may require additional yarn. Any elastic cast-on will work, but the long-tail cast on best coordinates with the bind-off. To adjust the depth, repeat R6-R17 until 10g of yarn remains, or desired height is reached, ending after R11 or R17.

Cowl measures 22cm/9” high and 173cm/68” around.

In version 1.2, R1-3 have the knit & purl reversed, and should read:
R1: Purl to end of rnd.
R2: Knit to end of rnd.
R3: Purl to end of rnd.
Version 1.3 is updated and any versions downloaded after Dec 30, 2015 should be correct.
