The Jeanette Cowl is like a collection of my favourite things - it’s a worsted weight, one skein project, simple without being boring, classy and good for quick project gratification :) The finished cowl is seamed together to create pockets for a drawstring that gathers it fetchingly at the neck, or is let out to maximize warmth.

You will need:
100 grams of worsted weight. A quick word of advice here - though it’s not mandatory, to really shine this piece needs a wet block before seaming. Therefore, I don’t recommend acrylic, or acrylic blends. Wool, wool blends with merino, cashmere or alpaca, all this is perfect :)

4.5 mm needles. Straights would work, but for that number of stitches you might find circulars a little more comfortable.

24” of the material you’d like to use in the drawstring. For simplicities sake I’m using yarn in a contrasting colour, but woven cord, leather cord, ribbon and i-cord are all fair game!

2 stitch markers

Tapestry needle for seaming and weaving in ends.

Optional: A pair of bead caps, to cover the ends of your drawstring afterwards.
