The squishy and comfortable Growl Cowl is knitted flat in one piece, sideways, and will be loved by the women and the men in your life. You’ll love it too!

This is an easy knit and instructions are given for 3 sizes -- 2 in DK, 1 in worsted weight), which gives you room to play with more sizes and yardages.

The large silky, green cowl (top photo) is knitted with 330 yds of worsted, the brown with 180 yds of worsted, and the smaller green with 250 yds of DK.

  • Techniques used (and explained): provisional cast on, short rows, and 3-needle bind off.

  • Written instructions and charts

The gauge (approximate) given above is for Louisa Harding Grace Hand-dyed on 5 mm needles. Approximate gauge for the other yarns:
