Japan Cowl

Knitting
April 2011
DK / 8 ply (11 wpi) ?
6 stitches and 8 rows = 1 inch in Stockinette in Colorwork
US 6 - 4.0 mm
200 - 250 yards (183 - 229 m)
8 inches long, with any desired circumference (Pattern written for 21")
This pattern is available for free.

This pattern is a 6 stitch repeat. With a gauge of 6 stitches to the inch, you can very, very easily size this cowl for any circumference you desire. Just add or subtract a repeat per inch. (Pattern is written for 21” circumference.)

The colorwork pattern for this cowl is VERY easy. Every row (except for two solid color rows) in the chart is a combination of four stitches of one color and two stitches of the other color in a 6 stitch repeat across the entire row.

I included picture instructions for picking up and knitting the accent edging, if desired.

I designed this cowl so that I could give it towards local charity knitting efforts for Japan. Feel free to use it for that purpose, or for your own personal use.
