5 for 4 – if you buy any 5 Åsa Tricosa patterns at the same time you get the least expensive one for free.

Mysteriosa Cowl is a cosy, textured cowl knitted top down in one piece with a slight flaring toward the bottom.

And yes, this is how the Mysteriosa Shawl started out – as this cowl.

  • It’s not lacy, although there are holes.
  • There is no stranded colourwork but contrasting colour accents appear.
  • There are no p2tog or p2togtbl.1.
  • Easily upsized for a larger cowl or to work with 4ply/sock yarn. (The pattern includes counts and cast on also for such a larger version but only the original size has been test knitted.)

Mysteriosa Cowl requires less than one skein of DK (or sock yarn). If you want a larger cowl, either follow the suggested larger counts or add one or more repeats to the cast on, and lengthwise, too.

  1. The Mysteriosa Shawl (a Mystery KAL in 2014) which because it’s knitted back and forth requires knitterly agility and vigilance for its slew of ptbl and p2togtbl. The cowl has twisted stitches, but only knitted ones. A breeze.
