This simple patterns creates a dense weave of fabric that is perfect for chilly nights. It works particularly well with yarns that are extremely multicolored or variegated, as the pattern creates almost a sprinkle effect with the shifting hues. The reversible pattern shows one side of “dots” and another of “dashes”.

Finished Size:
The finished dimensions, with my tension, the sport yarn, and size 7s, was about 24″ in a loop (48″ around) and 8″ deep, which drapes nicely around the neck. Adding a second skein would make it about 16” deep, and move the height of the cowl up around your chin.

335-670 yards of Dragonfly Fibers Damsel (or other sport weight yarn). One or two skeins depending on personal preference
Recommend size 7 needles, on 32-40” circulars
One stitch marker

Sample Shown:
Knit in Dragonfly Fibers Damsel “Firecracker” colorway.
