Big, squishy, lofty fabric and an interesting stitch texture all combine to make the Barrett Wool Co.wl the perfect seasonal knit. Using two skeins of Home Worsted Weight, in two contrasting colors, and the fisherman’s rib stitch makes this project a snap to complete. Half of the fun is picking out the color combinations and the other half of the fun is knitting it up. Wearing the finished cowl is easy, cozy and warm. The cowl is worked from the bottom up in 1 by 1 fisherman’s rib, see the video tutorial on the blog or on the Barrett Wool Co. YouTube Channel, if you are learning the stitch or if you need a quick refresher. The size of the cowl is easily adjusted to any size or depth. All you need is an even number of stitches at the start and you are ready to go!

30-inch (76cm) circumference, 12-inch (30cm) height

Note: The cowl size is easily adjustable by casting on more or fewer stitches; just be sure to cast on an even number of stitches. Additional yarn may be needed if you increase the size significantly.
