Chic Mega Cowl
Part of the Very Chic series, this oversized cowl features elongated cables, made extra fluid by dropping select stitches. Slight shaping makes it easy to wear over or under a coat, and the generous depth keeps both the neck and shoulders warm.
Techniques & Skills Used: long-tail CO, knit/purl, cables, dropped stitches, decreasing, knitting in the round; this pattern includes both a chart and written instructions.
Size: 15” tall and 18” circumference at top edge/24” circumference at bottom edge, after gentle blocking.
Other Materials: US 9 (5.5mm) 24” circular needle; Stitch markers (4); Cable needle; Yarn needle; Crochet hook (any size) to help with raveling.
Gauge: 16 st and 20 rows/4” in stockinette stitch; one cable is approximately 2.5” wide. The sample used almost all of two skeins; while gauge is not critical for this project, a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished cowl, and different yardage requirements.
Many thanks to my lovely test knitters!
