Helix Cowl

Knitting
July 2017
Fingering (14 wpi) ?
30 stitches and 29 rows = 4 inches
in colorwork
US 5 - 3.75 mm
580 yards (530 m)

This cowl offers serious drama with a simple con- struction. Just cast on and work the Helix colorwork pattern in the round, bind off, and sew the ends together. Since it’s worked as a tube, there is no wrong side! Use high-contrast sock yarn colors for an eye-catching look or try wooly neutrals for a more natural feel.

This pattern is one of five projects included in AlterKnit Stitch Dictionary. You can get the ebook free with purchase of the print edition from Interweave.
