Bob and Sway Cowl

Quick knit using a single hank of chunky yarn.

Worked in the round.

Opposing serpentine 2 over 1 cable columns create hour glass shaped sections filled with moss stitch and rev. stockinette stitch waves with bobbles.

Applied I-cord edging finishes the piece, blending with the look of the cables.

Written and Charted pattern - Chart reading ability is recommended but line by line directions are provided.


Approx 140 yards (128 m) of heavy worsted/aran/light chunky yarn
– Sample used Madeline Tosh Chunky in Baltic with plenty left over.

US 9 or 10 (5.5 – 6mm) circular needles 16 – 20” (40 -50 cm) long.
~Sample on US 10 (6 mm) but I knit tightly if you knit loosely try a US 9 (5.5 mm)

Pair of DPNs 2 sizes smaller than circulars used (for applied I cord edge)
