Block Party Cowl
Simple, stylish, and fast to knit, this cowl will add a pop of color to any wardrobe. Double loop it and go.
Yarn: Knit Picks Shine Sport 60% Pima Cotton; 40% Modal;
110 yards/50g, color A: 2 skeins Sailor, color B: 1 skein Sky, color
C: 1 skein Green Apple
Gauge; 26 stitches = 4” (10 cm), 36 rows = 4” (10 cm) in pattern.
Needles: US Size 4 (3.5 mm).
Notions: Tapestry needle, a crochet needle for cast on and a
small length of waste yarn.
Sample Finished Size: Cowl: 50” (127 cm) circumference, 5.5” (14 cm) height.
Gauge is not essential as long as you knit to measurements.
For the neatest finish, I recommend a provisional cast on and grafted finish. But if you prefer to do a standard cast on and seam the ends together, I will never tell.
