This is a pattern for BOTH the Cowl and the Scarf. Simple stripes and wonderful texture make this perfect for men and women. As a matter of fact, the pictures on this page are projects for both myself (cowl) and my husband (scarf).

The scarf is knit flat length-wise, then stitches are picked up at both ends to finish.

The cowl can be knit in the round, or worked flat then seamed. Instructions are provided for both methods.

Scarf – 85” x 7” (216cm x 17.75cm)
Cowl – 60” around x 7” (152.5cm around x 17.75cm)

Scarf: 450 Yards fingering weight in Main Color (MC)
400 yards fingering weight in Contrasting Color (CC)

Cowl: 300 Yards fingering weight in Main Color (MC)
225 yards fingering weight in Contrasting Color (CC)

I’ve added a small buffer of 15 - 25 yards for each as added insurance that you’ll have enough yarn to finish the project. When in doubt, it’s best to have more, and not less.

US Size 5 (3.75mm) or size needed to obtain gauge

20 stitches = 4” in Garter stitch on washed and blocked swatch.

Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
