Kallisto, Reversible Cowl
Gorgeous, practical, feminine, and reversible! What more could you ask for in a cool weather accessory?
Knit in the round on circular needles from the bottom to the top, the welted knit and purl borders frame this original reversible pattern stitch.
When made with yarn over’s, as shown, a lace effect is the result. If you prefer a more ‘solid’ texture, work increase (m1) stitches instead. This option will use a bit more yarn.
The pattern is written and charted. A ‘bonus’ chart for working flat for a traditional scarf is also included.
The Wool used is a hand spun creation made by Mary Pirie of Mary Pirie Designs, of Crieff, Scotland. Her lovely hand dyed blends can be found at An Cnoc Scottish Arts and Crafts, an-cnoc.com.
If you are not in the neighbourhood, then another worsted/Aran weight yarn can be used.
The cowl as shown is deep enough to wrap as a hood as illustrated. The bottom and top borders are slightly different, instructions are included for matching borders.
Exactly 2 hanks (100g each) of this luscious merino/silk blend was used. Total metres required: 460 metres (251 yards).
Any upwards alterations of the width or depth of the pattern will require more yarn.
Hope you enjoy this pattern!
