Mattock is a textured cowl inspired by the rolling farmlands and vineyards surrounding New York’s Finger Lakes region. Featuring a deceptively simple, satisfying repeat of ribbing and seed stitch, wrapped in a prim garter stitch border, this convertible cowl with four functional buttons can be styled many different ways.
long-tail cast-on, knit, purl, yarn over, knit two together, standard knitwise bind-off. Prior experience with ribbing and seed stitch makes the Mattock pattern easy to memorize!
