Arboles is a cozy cowl that works up quickly. Using less than 50 grams of two different coloured yarns this is perfect stash busting project.

This cowl is knit in the round and features slipped stitch pattern
bordered by an interesting textured ribbing variation.

US size 2.5 3.00 mm circular knitting needles 16”/40 cm long or size required to obtain correct gauge

US size 5 3.75 mm circular
knitting needles 16”/40cm or needles 2-3 sizes larger

Stitch Markers - 2
Yarn needle for sewing in ends

Gauge:
20sts and 32 rows = 4 inches/10 cm in stockinette stitch.

Although gauge is not critical in this pattern the border stitches use more stitches on larger needles than the slip stitch pattern. Once gauge is obtained over the pattern stitches it is important to use a needle 2-3 sizes larger for the border.
